Php5 / Mysql5 Upgrades

Php5 / Mysql5 Upgrades

 

As many of you know, PHP 4.x will be reaching its end of life at the beginning of January 2008. This means that the developers of PHP are no longer going to offer support for PHP 4, which ultimately means we can no longer run PHP4 on our production servers.

 

We have constantly been managing the balance between those of you who have been asking us for PHP5 and those of you who have older scripts that would be broken by PHP5 asking to maintain PHP4. It is due to these compatibility issues with various PHP scripts we held off on doing so. However, all major scripts have now been upgraded to work with PHP5, and hence the time is right for us to upgrade. This server will be left online with php4 until the first of 2008 at which time we will need to have all accounts moved to PHP5.

 

Before those of you with older scripts begin to panic, we will be here to help throughout the process, and we are looking to leave one server using PHP4 for those cases which cannot be upgraded in a hurry.

 

Many of you may be asking "What does this mean to me and my website". Quite simply in most cases the upgrade to the server hosting your web site will be seamless. There should be no changes in the way your static web pages load and operate. If your using web pages built on php code this upgrade "may" effect your site. Some of the code used in PHP 4 may not function in the same manner running under php5. In the cases of scripts you have purchased or installed, most vendors have their code PHP5 compliant now. If you have custom written your code, then you may need to revamp certain sections of it to run properly under php5.

 

As stated earlier, we will be upgrading to the latest stable builds of PHP 5 and MySQL5.

 

We will begin a limited roll out of the new versions on 11/13/2007. This roll out will be limited to our servers located in our Troy, MI Data center and the upgrades will take place on 11/13/2007 starting @ 12:01am The first roll out effects the following servers:
