Updated PHP and MySQL services

Just a quick service update to let you know that we have updated our PHP and MySQL servers.

PHP v 5.3.6

PHP version is now 5.3.6

MySQL version is now 5.1.52

Furthermore,  your MySQL databases are now kept on Amazon’s EBS,  which basically means that data durability is better and the chance of a single drive fault causing problems is minimized. We continue to make hot copy backups of each database several times throughout the day (stored on S3) and have added a daily snap copy of our EBS backed storage to our backup processes. So,  in the unlikely event of a hard crash,  boy do we have some backups to choose from. :)
