    I wonder how long cPanel will support/offer PHP4.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I don't think cPanel will be removing support for PHP 4 as of for now. They'd do this in the future for sure.. but that's far away :)

    I don't think it's any further away than the first security issue. There will be no more patches for php4, even critical security ones. php.net has been warning people for over a year, to move to php5. You really should. My guess is that php4 support could disappear any day. Viraj might be correct, it could be quite a while, but I wouldn't bet my business on it.

    Agreed, it would be prudent to migrate to PHP 5 if you haven't already done so. PHP 4 support at this time should only be used to assist in the transition to PHP 5.

    Remember, PHP 4 reaches full EOL on August 8.
