I’m considering Dreamhost to move a client’s site here after reading positive reviews.
I have a very specific requirement though:
Need support for PHP 5.3… this is a WP site that effectively broke when my client’s current host upgraded the server (and all their servers for that matter) to PHP 5.4, and the client doesn’t have the budget to have their site revamped/upgraded to have it work on PHP 5.4 (issues with the theme - it’s an oldish theme, 3 years old).
I need to know if:
a) there’s an option to pick the version of PHP when setting up an account OR there’s an option to make this choice once the account has been created
b) how long will Dreamhost support PHP 5.3 (to buy my client some time)
c) will Dreamhost forcibly upgrade servers to PHP 5.4
