Version and plugins

OK, I'm forced to run an older version of Geeklog as my isp hasn't upgraded the cpanel version they allowed me to install. My question is what plugins work with what versions as there seems to be no way of telling what is what as far as plugins go. Is there a list or some way of telling what works with what version?

Thanks Everyone.

This isn't exactly what you want, but it's probably the closest thing that anyone has put together.

Hope this helps

This really shouldn't stop you from upgrading Geeklog yourself.

Why would you not simply do a manual install?
Rather than waiting for fantastico or cpanel to be updated with a current version.
1.4.1 installs in about 15 minutes, start to finish.
Create the DB, UL the files / folders, set a few permissions (IIRC) and install.
Serious, it's that simple. And the security issues of running an outdated release are not worth the risk.

Well, it did. For some reason they won't let me create a new DB as I tried to do a manual so I'm stumped for the moment as far as upgrading. But I do really appreciate your advice and if I figure out what they are doing to stop me I will again have more questions for you guys. Thanks for your suggestion, jmucchielloas, it inspires me to find a way around my current limitations.

Yup! Your right 15 minutes. However it failed as I could not create the DB. Seems there is some sort of limitations as to how and who can create DB's on my server. When I signed up I was told I had unlimited DB's but looks like I only have one. However, I am going to try several things to see if I can install the latest version as I am aware of security risks that I may be running. Thanks for your suggestions I appreciate your comments very much.

Okay, you said they installed an older version of Geeklog using cpanel. So that version of Geeklog has access to a database. Just copy the database settings from that version's config.php into the latest version's config.php. Then you should be good to go.
