Joomla! Hosting & Support PHP Settings
LAMP Applications, PHP, and Shared Hosting Packages
Joomla! and other LAMP applications require PHP. PHP is a programming language. Most people do not need to know PHP to use Joomla! or any other LAMP application. PHP is managed and updated as a service on the Cloudaccess.net Platform. CloudAccess.net manages all PHP versions, security updates and patches. If you need assistance with any of the settings in our PHP hosting service, submit a support ticket and our engineers will respond to your questions.
We are currently using PHP version 5.3.15 on our platform. AtomiCorp provides us with all the prepared repos. AtomiCorp archives are available through the yum package manager for Fedora, RHEL and CentOS.
Custom PHP.INI Settings
We provide a robust PHP platform. In most cases, having a custom php.ini file is not required. We provide our clients with a rich set of PHP settings directly out of the box when they launch one of our products. If your application has special PHP needs please submit a support ticket. Your documentation may state that you need a custom php.ini setting, but in most cases our platform has the larger setting already enabled. If you require a setting we do not offer within our standard hosting plans, we can offer custom php.ini settings for a single site, and you will need to upgrade your hosting plan to a professional account or you will need to move the site to our Joomla! VPMC dedicated hosting server. If you feel that a PHP setting should be added to our shared hosting platform, please submit a support ticket, tell us why you feel the setting should be added, and we will review your case.
