Our newest servers give you the option to run different versions of PHP (5.2, 5.3, 5.4) on your account.
If this cannot be used, we also provide a Loader Wizard PHP script that gives guidance on installing manually.
For the most part we’ll use standard out-of-the-box packages that Ubuntu provides.
Since the features I’m looking for are in PHP 5.3, I’m fine with having slightly outdated packages for other software as long as they’re compatible with PHP 5.3. You can feel free to use your own web server, but for this example I opted for Apache based on the simplicity of installing PHP as an Apache module.
Our official web hosting partner 1&1 offer a 1-click install in order to save you time and get you started even faster.
Using these can drastically reduce the installation time for inexperienced users.
