PHP4 to PHP5 upgrade – May 26, 2008

        PHP4 support was discontinued by the authors as of January, 2008.  Lime Daley will be moving everyone to PHP5 this Friday, May 30.  We will go through each site to try to make sure it is still working, but depending on what PHP applications you are using, particularly if you wrote it yourself, there might be issues in migrating.  There are two temporary solutions that you can use if your code doesn't work in PHP5.

  • Rename the affected files with a .php4 extension.
  • Add a bit of code to your .htaccess file:

 ForceType application/x-httpd-php4

    Remember that this is only a temporary measure, as PHP4 does not receive ongoing security updates and bug fixes, and it will be supported less and less as time goes on.
