    It's been released? Apparently so! But it's not listed anywhere on the PHP site, nor in WHM's Apache Update area. Read the subscription email from the PHP team below...

    All the links provided above either '404' or simply don't list PHP 5.2.0!

    cPanel Staff: How do I add PHP 5.2.0 to my list of available PHP versions when updating Apache?

    According to the post at php.net, it was released today ( 2-nov-2006 ) so don't expect cpanel to make it available any time soon.

    What do you mean "what about PHP 4 users"? This does not mean PHP 4 will disappear, although you should upgrade to PHP 5 since it has been out for several years now.

    I don't see them stopping PHP 4. This is just adding 5.2 to the options. Most scripts will actually work fine with PHP 5 anyway. At least they should do if they're written properly. Any decent 3rd party apps will also support PHP 5 now too. We upgraded our servers to PHP 5.1 ages ago and have had no complaints from customers.

    The problem is: why PHP didn't come with a new version for PHP 4.x, to solve the latest security problem? However, PHP4 is still listed in http://snaps.php.net/

    There are some incompatibilities between PHP 4 and 5 (especially for classes) so an upgrade to php5 on a server that contains several hundred websites is not an easy task.

    PHP 5.2.0 can be compiled and installed over PHP 5.1.6, even on a server with cPanel (from ssh console). Is better to have a copy of the previous php version /usr/local/apache/libexec/libphp5.so just in case apache is not starting.

    If your PHP 4 classes are well written you will have no problems with upgrading to PHP 5

    i can't imagine how anoying this stuff is for the cpanel staff

    4 days is nothing, it's out now, but to give that amount of exclimation points after something has been out for 4 days is rediculous. if you want to be an early adopter cpanel probably isn't for you, if you want stability, maybe it is.

    If you are still running PHP4... you really shouldn't. We upgraded to PHP 5 already in summer 2005 without any issues and this was done in multiple servers. Just let your users know about the update good time in advance. If the code is done properly you really shouldn't have any issues and almost all software works with PHP5 now. If it doesnt, it's just badly outdated or bad programming.

    Let's face it, PHP6 is on it's way and support for PHP4 will come to an end sooner or later.


    P.S. You dont have to wait for cPanel to get PHP 5.2.0 - you can install it manually and have it running right away.
