Version support in VPS - PHP

Postby nm78265 » Wed Dec 26, 2012 3:47 pm

'Been running host services since 1992 (no kidding) and Joomla sites since v1.5 was current. I currently run a cPanel VPS with several Joomla installations of various versions for many customers. From all I can tell, they all seem to be functioning, at least for the most part. Although I cannot bring to mind a specific anomoly, some minor issues I've encountered may be related to conflicts with the PHP version running on the server.

Recently, I was faced with installing a new site and chose Joomla 3.0 version. After the download, FTP transfer, and unpack, I navigated to the domain and encountered the error message noting the PHP version running was inadequate and must be upgraded to support J3.0.

I can upgrade the PHP version on the VPS, but I am concerned that there may be some reprocussions affecting the older Joomla sites, at least one of which is v1.5.

Can I get a reading on the damage, disfunction, or otherwise distruction to the older sites that could result from upgrading the PHP?

Appreciate that, but, I'm speaking to the lowest version under which J3.0 will operate. Is this PHP5.3?
