Upgrading to PHP 5.2.17 in Parallels Plesk 9.5.2
I recently needed to do a test install of the Magento on one of my servers for a client who was using Parallels Plesk version 9.52. It seems their version of Plesk running on CentOS only had PHP 5.1.6 installed. The version of Magento I was installing required a version of PHP that >= 5.2.
