How to update PHP on a MS Webserver

We are trying to update the WordPress on our managed web hosting service. Our managed web hosting service uses Simple Scripts to install such to our hosting, such as WordPress. We did this and WordPress works fine, except we need to upgrade WordPress 3.2.1 for some of our plug-ins to work. We get a message saying "You cannot update because WordPress 3.2.1 requires PHP version 5.2.4 or higher. You are running version 4.4.8.". We want to upgrade PHP to PHP 5.3.8. Our Web Hosting service says we just need to get the php.ini file to upload. These are Windows Servers. Where do we get this PHP 5.3.8 php.ini file? Thanks

create php file,then you can find all the system informations


<?php

// Show all information, defaults to INFO_ALL
phpinfo();

// Show just the module information.
// phpinfo(8) yields identical results.
phpinfo(INFO_MODULES);

?>

If your hosting service "says we just need to get the php.ini file to upload" you're getting the run-around.  Ask the tech support person to escalate the issue to the next level.  Tell them this: "I need my PHP scripts to be parsed through PHP 5.3+" and ask them to make the change (after all you are paying them to host your site).  It's .htaccess in a Linux system, but I do not know the Windows equivalent.

HTH, ~Ray
