Good morning, we are currently in process of sending out notifications to all of our customers regarding the status of PHP 4. The PHP development team officially ended support for PHP 4 on December 31st, 2007 and security updates ceased in August of 2008. We have continued to support PHP 4 well past that date as an option to our customers so they may have some additional time to update their software for PHP 5 compatibility.
Although we do not yet have a firm date for this change, we wanted to give you advance notice so that you can take some time to check the compatibility of your software to ensure it will function properly with PHP 5 (the current default). Once we have a firm date for when this change will be made on your server, you will receive another email notice closer to the removal date with that information.
Once PHP 4 support is removed, any scripts that require PHP 4 will no longer operate on our server.To check if your site will function with PHP 5, simply remove the following line from any “.htaccess” files on your account to immediately switch to PHP5 (warning: doing so may cause your site to break if it’s not compatible):
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php4 .php
If you have any questions, or notice any problems at all, please submit a ticket to our support team.
