In an effort to offer the latest and greatest technologies for Cloud Sites customers, we are announcing support for PHP 5.6 and MariaDB 10.0 in our ORD datacenter!
You can now create sites using PHP 5.6 or transition an existing site to PHP 5.6 via the Cloud Sites Features tab. MariaDB 10.0, a drop in replacement for MySQL 5.5, is also available when creating new databases. Please be aware that changing technology may change the IP address as well. See the below links for details.
