December 14, 2006 — Web hosting provider Modwest (modwest.com) announced on Wednesday it has launched a Web-based tool to help customers instantly configure their accounts for either PHP4 or PHP5.
Modwest says this new tool is an upgrade to the company’s OnSite hosting control panel. As a Web company specializing in PHP hosting, Modwest has made both PHP4 and PHP5 available, with PHP4 as the explicit default. However, with the new tool’s introduction, customers who require the PHP5 functionality can configure their accounts to run their .php files via the PHP5 interpreter quickly and easily, says the company.
“Modwest has always excelled at hosting PHP Web applications and this new tool further cements our position in the PHP hosting industry,” says John Masterson, VP and co-founder of Modwest. “The tool gives our customers new power and flexibility to easily upgrade their accounts to run PHP5 applications, or even mix and match PHP4 and PHP5 within a single Web site.”
Modwest says that according to Netcraft, PHP is the world’s most popular server-side scripting language and runs nearly 20 million Web sites worldwide.
