My web designer bother asked me to find out whether Proz hosting uses PHP5 and mySQL (required by the publishing application called Drupal). Could someone confirm this please?

I'm a complete idiot when it comes to web design and hosting!!

Thank you.
Kind regards,
Minna

This is how Drupal and others are called.

ProZ.com hosting currently uses:
PHP version 4.4.7
MySQL version 4.1.22-standard

I'm currently using Wordpress on my ProZ.com hosted translation website, it works perfectly. However I had tried to install Joomla and the more recent versions were much too big for the hosting size. The simpler Wordpress is more than enough for a translator's website though. As far as I know Drupal is small sized too.

Another thing to check is the RAM, I can't find the info but this can be important for some CMS. From what I see here http://drupal.org/requirements 16Mb is required for the most recent versions.

I had chosen Joomla and Wordpress over their competitors because there is a very large variety of skins with those two ("Joomla templates" and "Wordpress themes") - but obviously the choice depends on what you're looking for.

Drupal works with PHP 4 Jan 31, 2009

Note: Drupal works with PHP 4 & 5. If you need support for the newest PHP 5.2, however, you must use Drupal 6.0 (and higher) or Drupal 5.1 (and higher)
