More hosted PHP

Alastair Grant | Thu 14 Jul 2011

1&1 have updated their dev build of PHP to 5.4 Alpha 1 (yes, alpha).

PHP.net advise not using this in a production environment as it's unstable. Great, so I've got the choice of PHP 5.2, which support has already been dropped for and no longer maintained by PHP.net, or a unstable alpha version of 5.4.

To add insult, 1&1 suggested I created a new account and migrated all my domains and mail over in order to switch my package to the advertised ones at the advertised price (existing customers need to pay another £3 a month). Honestly, if I go to the effort to move my hosting, it will not be staying with 1&1.

Breaking from the voyeuristic norms of the Internet, any comments can be made in private by contacting me.
