I have started the process but Base gives me the same error as ACID:

PHP ERROR: Incompatible version: Version 5.0.2 of PHP is too old. Please
upgrade to version 4.0.4 or later

I'm running the latest Base "base-"

This version apparently has not been patched for PHP5, any newer version out

Kindest regards,
