I thought this would be easy... 30 emails later, seems not. What I want is to be able to test 2.2, get some experience with it and migrate 1.9 mods forward. My wife (she's the instructor, I'm the code writer) for her 1.9 uses lunarpages as the host. I thought, no problem, I'll buy another site, install 2.2 and be good to go. Wrong. It seems that finding hosts that provide PHP 5.3.2 or better, and at a cheapy price are rare or at least hard to find. Lunarpages will provide it, but at double the cost - sorry, but no thanks. Since then I've contacted 20+ favorably rated cheapy hosts and none offer better than 5.2.17. The mySQL 5.0.25 requirement doesn't seem to be a problem - all that I've contacted seem to offer at least such. SO.. my question is: have others found cheapy ($5-10/month) hosts that do provide the requisite 5.3 php? If so, I'd sure like to hear about them.
many thanks - greg
