Hosting For Joomla 1.0.15?

Post by hobartimus » Mon Nov 26, 2012 3:28 pm

I have several hosting customers who are still using Joomla! 1.0.15 and do not want to upgrade due to time and cost of upgrading. Can someone recommend a provider who can host these old sites securely?

The culprit is the php version. Find a provider that has php version no higher than 5.2 available.

I've actually patched the sites for php 5.3 and have no errors displayed. I'm really more concerned with blocking attacks such as XSS.

No more security fixes will be made for 1.0. You have to rely on the security information that was available when 1.0.15 was released. If those sites have been running without being hacked for five years, they will probably continue to do so.
