    thx's

    we're planning to upgrade to 4.4.6 as we only have a few customers who actually use PHP on this server.

    I would advise you run 5.2.1, 4 has been nothing but trouble in recent months and doesnt seem to be maintained as often as 5

    yes, I agree. I only have a few accounts that actual use PHP, so I think it'll be a safe bet to use 4.4.6

    haven't had any problems w/4.4.4 for quiet some time, but figured it maybe wise to upgrade. PHP is so prone to bugs, flaws and security holes ... who knows.

    A side note ....
    Just wondering, when upgrade via easyapache, we currently have the following PHP setup:
    Code:
    php -v
    PHP 4.4.4 with Suhosin-Patch 0.9.6 (cli) (built: Nov  7 2006 16:26:01)
    Built specifically for Linux Tech Networks clients
    Copyright (c) 1997-2004 The PHP Group
    Zend Engine v1.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2004 Zend Technologies
        with the ionCube PHP Loader v3.1.29, Copyright (c) 2002-2007, by ionCube Ltd., and
        with Zend Extension Manager v1.0.10, Copyright (c) 2003-2006, by Zend Technologies
        with Zend Optimizer v3.0.1, Copyright (c) 1998-2006, by Zend Technologies
    
    will I need to update Zend also or is that automatically update(if needed) ??


    thx's

    we use 4.4.6 for quite a long time - since it got released. and seems pretty ok. i will only go to 5 version when i really feel like asking my customers to make mods to their apps.

    PHP 5 has been out for almost 3 years and what very few apps there were that
    had any problems have been updated or fixed a long, long, long time ago!

    It's been a good 2 years since I've run into any application anywhere that
    legitimately had any compatibility problems with PHP 5 and your client
    scripts should run perfectly fine without any modifications whatsoever!

    We run PHP 5 exclusively across our entire hosting network and have
    never had a single complaint from anyone and we are talking about
    thousands upon thousands of customers too!

    The newest version in PHP 4 is version 4.4.6 and anyone still using the old ancient
    PHP 4 series should upgrade to this version ASAP as some very serious security flaws
    were found in PHP v4.4.4 and v4.4.5 that this release addresses.

    The newest version for PHP 5 is 5.2.1 and is very stable and even more secure.

    It should be noted that PHP 5.2.2 is getting ready to be released anytime now
    so keep a close eye out on the www.php.net web site for release announcements.
