As a PHP developer, we are often stuck with hosts that support insanely old versions of PHP. This means that some projects end up supporting those insanely old versions, and we all get stuck in this "Mexican Standoff" situation.
Some developers force their requirements to be much higher than these default versions in a bid to force the hosting companies to upgrade, but in reality we just end up with people reducing their software to try and get it onto old servers.
Let's keep close tabs on who is offering which versions of PHP, so we can help those less in the know find good companies to host their stuff on.
