I’m well-entrenched with my hosting company BlueRazor.com (part of GoDaddy) and they use PHP5 (v 5.1.2) versus “PHP 5.2.0 or newer” stated in Magento’s System Requirements http://www.magentocommerce.com/system-requirements
I emailed BlueRazor’s customer support and they responded “Unfortunately MySQLi and mhash are not supported with our version of PHP 5”
My question is, what would happen if I went ahead and tried to use Magento on the older version of PHP v5.1.2 on BlueRazor? If it’s a few known functions I can live without, that’s fine and I’ll go ahead with Magento.
FYI, I’m using BlueRazor’s Linux “Hosting Configuration 2.0”.
Thank you very much for your help.
