So, I manage an existing website for a friend who uses 1&1 (she's been with them since long before I knew her). I got a lovely email yesterday from them yesterday...apparently as of next week, they're going to charge users $8.50 a month to use PHP 5.x, and anyone who signs up after June 1 won't even have the option of PHP 5.x. This is after they raised their normal fee $80/year too. What a joke.


I mean, I know 5.x is technically unsupported, but considering that the wide majority of PHP software out there doesn't run on 7.x...who in their right mind thought that was a good idea?


Oh well, time to move her site to Tommy...(Joomla 2.5 that isn't updatable because of custom theme and paid plugins).



Please do not PM me for support. Posting on our forums lets all of us learn.
