Hosting Requirements

Hi, I'm trying to find a hosting company in the UK, so that I can start using Concrete5 to experiment with. Does anyone know, or can point me in the right direction as to exactly what Concrete5 needs eg. PHP version, mySQL version, can it be Plesk host?
Many Thanks

I use and never had a problem with them. Not used PLESK before I am guessing similar to CPanel.

I can't tell you what the technical requirements are but the host I'm with includes concrete5 as one of many installation options. I'm with and so far I have found their customer service to be excellent.

I can provide you with UK based C5 hosting services with one click install if needed.
£4.95 a month with full control panel, 5000MB webspace, 50000MB bandwidth, 10 email accounts, 5 databases, 5 sub domains.
Locked FTP account (unlock for a short time when you to transfer files), nice and secure.

Free domain transfer.

Any other questions let me know.

You can use Plesk, I use it.
Plesk gives you enough control to add the DB, set up the site and set the permissions on the config, blocks, files etc directories.
If you get stuck feel free to message me.

Hi Humphrey138,

Here is the info. taken from the link Pro101 provided.

To get the most out of concrete5, you need:

PHP 5.2.4 or greater
PHP Modules: CURL, zip, mcrypt, openssl, GD (with freetype), mysql, mbstring
PHP settings (primarily for file uploads) post_max_upload_filesize = 20, post_max_size = 20, php memory limit to 64 (More may be needed for memory intensive operations, such as upgrading.)
MySQL 5.x or higher.
Apache/IIS (Apache recommended)

Hope this helps,
