Now I am using the Exetel provided web space to host a small PHP/MySQL project of mine, its really annoying me having to continuously write it so its compatible with the PHP & MySQL versions Exetel are using. I know its ultra easy to upgrade the PHP & MySQL versions because I am a system administrator of my own, I also it would increase, fix and speed up and secure security holes in the servers to.

I know that paid hosting would be better, but I kinda like cPanel hosting better.

So I was wondering:
1. Could PHP be upgraded?
2. Could MySQL be upgraded?
3. Could the PHPmyAdmin on https://home.exetel.com.au/ Be upgraded.

Hi stormx,

the home.exetel.com.au server is currently slated for a rebuild. You can be sure that when this occurs, MySQL and PHP will both be updated to their respective stable versions.

Hi danielc,

There is currently no timeframe. The best I can do is "It's being worked on".

At present estimates we'll be able to provide you with an interface to the new server by the 22nd.

The new server will run php 5.2 and mysql 5.0.

I doubt that would be an issue. :)
