PHP and MySQL Support in WordPress

Support for PHP 4 and MySQL 4 is to be dropped after the release of WordPress 3.1, due October 2010. Users without at least PHP 5.2 and MySQL 5.0.15 will then be able to upgrade to newer versions from WordPress 3.2 onwards.

Our hosting clients can rest assured that we already meet these minimum requirements and that their WordPress sites will continue to work with the expected future updates. If you’re not sure whether your web hosting meets the stated minimum requirements you can install the Health Check plugin available from the WordPress Plugins Repository.

On a related note – it’s expected that both Drupal and Joomla will also be adopting these same minimum standards with their new releases expected later this year.
