    I am with a web host (webserve.ca) which has me set up with a cpanel account, but it has php version 5.0.5. I would like to use the most recent version (5.2.1), but they seem to think that it would be a problem to upgrade.

    What is the problem with upgrading to php 5.2.1 in a cpanel environment?

    Thanks,

    - Henrik

    There are many cPanel forum users updated Php to v5.2.1 and have no problems. What problems with Php v5.2.1 your host is referring to?

    They just seem to think it would be a problem, and are offering to move me to an Ensim system server to facilitate the upgrade. That would be a hassle, as I have a bunch of domain names registered with a third party registrar pointing to my current server.

    I think maybe they're a little, um, unaware...

    Thanks for the response.

    FYI Webserve.ca relented (in part thanks to the feedback here, I believe), and installed PHP 5.2.1 on my cpanel server. Thank goodness!

    Thanks all,

    - Henrik
