    Keep in mind current PHP 4 releases are not much more than maintenance releases. PHP 4 officially reaches EOL on 8/8/8 so you may want to consider migrating to PHP 5 before that date.

    PHP 4.4.8 was released today:

    http://www.php.net/


    I have a server with about 400 php scripts I have to fully test and recode a bit before moving PHP 5. With my time schedule it will take me about 3 months to get them ready.

    I have Opendir and Safe Mode Turned off anyway because a few applications require it. All the fixes look like they only benefit you if you have safe mode and opendir enabled.

    I'm currently running 4.4.7, should I just wait the 3 months?

    PHP 4.4.8 is now available via EasyApache 3.

    You might be better off just doing your testing and moving to PHP 5.

    I recommend you to act like the way below:

    Open Easyapache 3 and compile your apache with both php4 and php5. Select php4 as default. Then you can select which version of php to use from php configuration section on the accounts cpanel. Then you can test the scripts with php5, if there is no problem then you can set php5 for this account.

    Thanks...

    Yeah, probably do the 4/5 comp thing. Thanks guys.


    I have to applaud Cpanel for getting the release of 4.4.8 out so quickly for Easy Apache (less than 12 hours). Way to go guys!
