Define no control. They are unable to choose another repo and install a newer version of PHP? They are unable to change hosting provider? I mean, for Centos 6, the latest PHP is available through IUS repo and many are starting to adopt 7.

Digital Ocean, Amazon are very in-expensive and I can find VPS for $5 a month which will all support PHP 5.6.

Finally, maybe there is a technical deficit when it comes to having the latest PHP? That is, the developers look at the linux command line and don't know how to use it?

Look, there are no excuses. It's trivial to upgrade. Migrating to a box is cheap, using another repo to install it's cheap. Cheap, Cheap, Cheap.

The Zend guys should really make 5.6 and less obsolete when 7.1 comes out. Ohh, that really would put a cat amongst the pigeons won't it! Big Grin
