Getting ready for WordPress 3.2
Posted on July 4, 2011
Earlier today WordPress 3.2 was released. The new version brings with it new minimum requirements for PHP and MySQL. The new minimum supported versions are PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5.0.
Before you upgrade to version 3.2, you’ll want to make sure your server is ready. Here are a few ways you can do that:
1. Install the WordPress Requirements Check plugin by Ryan Duff.
2. Log in to your hosts control panel. If it’s using cPanel, the server information will be displayed down the left side. Look for PHP and MySQL and confirm the version numbers.
3. Contact your host directly and ask!
By now, the majority of the hosting companies out there are already meeting these minimum requirements. However, if you are hosting on your nephew’s friend’s server, you will definitely want to take a moment to double check. If you find that your hosting company is NOT up to date with these minimum requirements, we strongly suggest you look in to a host like InMotion Hosting or Page.ly
