What hosting plan will give me access to PHP 5.5+?
I am on economy hosting and the only versions of PHP available are ones that aren't even supported anymore. I have read that with different hosting plans you can get newer versions (which is a little discouraging that they require an upgrade for this when my other hosts do not).
Anyway, I can't find anywhere on the site where it says which plan I need in order to have access to which version of PHP.
PHP 5.6 should be available on economy hosting. Not sure about managed TrouserPress or any other CMS. The clue is in the name; managed! Which points to the fact that it's managed for you. This can be a bonus or curse depending on your tech skill. That stuff scares me more than flesh-eating hordes of zombies.
Give me a powerful text editor (VIM), TERMINAL and a mountain of coding books any time.
Go into cPanel and into PHP settings to find a dropdown menu with about 3 different PHP versions.
Check with support before pressing that tempting 'buy now button'............
