    I would like to upgrade my server to PHP5 and I haven't seen anybody post a lot about PHP5 since May and was wondering if those who have attempted to upgrade have run into any major problems. There's several hundred sites on my server (most of which I dont' maintain) and was wondering if it will be a nightmare to upgrade due to the differences in 4/5.

    Does anyone know of a list of common problems caused from switching from 4 to 5 that contains fixes? This would certainly come in handy when getting complaints from clients when their scripts do not work.

    I'm interested in PHP5 as well...

    I would also like php5 as I use it with apache2 in all of my non-production utility boxes, and some expert advice on how to upgrade (or reasons why not to) and tricks to avoid some of the common pitfalls would be fantastic! I have a few site applications that won't run correctly under 4.x., and I am pretty new to CPanel, so I am a little reluctant to upgrade PHP from the default at this point...

    Thanks

    We upgraded to PHP5 a couple of weeks ago - biggest problem was in compiling, but see other threads on the forum regarding fix for that.

    Since then, some of our clients' scripts generated errors as a result of the PHP upgrade, but all of those were fixed by upgrading the software.

    if it is time to move, i am sure cpanel team would have included it into standard cpanel update.

    The version of php you run has no concern to cPanel, they provide it into the apache updating system and that's the furthest they will go.

    Is there anyway to make it so PHP4 will be the default version of PHP on the server, then for those who want to use PHP5 can set it in a custom php.ini file in their root directory?
