Dear Community,

We have been attempting to update Joomla 2.5 to 3.3.6 using the step by step instructions here

Once we got to step 8 in the Going to Joomla 3.x we got the following error:

"We can't install the update to 3.3.6 as your host doesn't support the minimum requirements for Joomla 3.3.6 and there is no alternative available."

We see that Joomla 3.3.6 is available to install in Softaculous, and, therefore, are confused as to why we are receiving this error message.

Please help.

I'm sorry you're having problems with the Joomla upgrade from 2.5 to 3.x. Generally, when a problem like that occurs, it is the result of a common requirement that can modified within the account - in this case it's probably the PHP version. You can change the PHP version in cPanel. Please change the PHP version to a higher version, then try the upgrade once again. It should take care of that issue for you. If you continue to have problems, please let us know.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.
