The VMs for all platforms are at <http://squeakvm.org> along with links to
the Cog VMs.

Any recent Squeak VM can run a wide range of images, including those
intended for Cog as well as older images that may have been produced
before Cog was widely available.

Cog VMs provide significantly better performance, but are not able to
run some older images.

I would guess from the original post that seasidehosting is probably
running an outdated standard Squeak VM. If this could be updated to a
current Squeak VM, it would be then possible to run a wide range of
Seaside images. If support for older images is not an issue, then a
Cog VM could be used instead. However, I would guess that some images
on seasidehosting may not be based on the latest Squeak or Pharo
releases, in which case a standard VM would still be the better choice.

In summary, what is most likely needed is just for seasidehosting
to update its VM to a more recent version from squeakvm.org.
