PHP 4 On The Way Out

PHP 4 On The Way Out


Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

The PHP group have announced they are ending development and support for PHP 4 at the end of this year.

There will be no further releases of PHP 4.4 after the 31st December 2007, but they plan to continue making critical security fixes till August 2008.

Considering the poor uptake of PHP 5 and the fact there is no definitive release date for PHP 6, this announcement seems a little premature.

Today it is exactly three years ago since PHP 5 has been released. In those three years it has seen many improvements over PHP 4. PHP 5 is fast, stable & production-ready and as PHP 6 is on the way, PHP 4 will be discontinued.

  • That sounds very scary.

    Without the support, all Linux hosting may just move to PHP5. Suddenly many PHP applications will not functioning correctly.

    Most php developers I knew are still with PHP4.4-, who are not familiar with OO type of programming. I am also wondering if Yahoo will update their developer support to PHP5.

    It’s time to move on to PHP5 + MySQL5 + Apache 2.2.

  • Being fairly new to the WordPress landscape, this sounds somewhat disconcerting. I didn’t know that PHP 5 has been around for three years and has obtained little traction. With different versions of PHP, MySQL and WordPress floating around, I’m going to guess things could be ugly for a while in the blogosphere.

  • Just load PHP 5.2 + Apache 2.2.3. It still runs my old PHP4.3.4 application. It actually runs faster thought.

    So I guess PHP5 is way to go!

  • PHP 5.* is far much better and easier to scale. It shouldn’t be a problem I suppose to convert applications to PHP 5.* in terms of code alone and not architecture.

  • PHP 5 is buggy as hell! I started to create a CMS in it within the first 2 days came across 2 known bugs. So i ditched it, can’t work like that I’m afraid.
    Until they’ve ironed out the school boy error bugs I’m not touching it with a barge pole.
