Unfortunately, the host that I want to install supports PHP Version 4.4.4.

Q: Is there work around? ...or I need to wait until they upgrade.

Thankx in advance,

PHP 5 or later is required - sorry...

I too faced the same problem. The solution is

If you want by default all of your php(.php) files to be run by the PHP5 engine, u need to do the following:
=> Create/edit the .htaccess file in your /public_html directory and add the following line.

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php

Once the above line is added, then php5 will be used by default in ur website and make silverstripe to be compactable.
