If I understood Gregory correctly, there would even be some budget.

So who has spent more time on administering the software index than me?
And I have spent 0 hours the past years. Except in the role as 
for change proposals every now and then. But that is not PHP or MySQL code
or whatever.

And it is a pleasure for me to devote this time to the project.

In summary we are already spending more time just discussing pros and
cons of alternate solutions than it did need having it as is.

And if someone can provide me a host with apache, php and mysql I can
migrate it from the current host and back it is. Thats it.
