So my evil hosting provider hasn’t upgraded and has no intention to upgrade to php 5.3. I want to buy a CMS wordpress template but they are only in PHP 5.3. I was wondering if I can downgrade the template from PHP 5.3 to 5.2? I am a newbie and don’t have much programming knowledge. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx, Jason
Get a new host?
If your host won’t upgrade from 5.3 which was released 4 years ago and has been outdated by PHP 5.4 AND PHP 5.5 then your host does not care about you!
There’s a reason why REAL developers don’t use 5.3. The amount of bugs, security exploits etc that are in PHP 5.3 make me think you DESERVE to have EVERYTHING hacked and deleted. Harsh yes but by gosh you’ll learn.
