      Great news. I read a tutorial about running PHP4 and 5 in parallel but it confused me. Maybe i'll give it a try again

          The real question is, does vB work on it? I know some other things have problems with it.

            vB3 will run on it. vbulletin.com may prove that and update from PHP 4.3.6 to PHP 5 ^^
            That's the end of that!

              No, we saw a performance drop with PHP5 and also a bug that would break the members area and phpMyAdmin.

              This will stop most people from installing it.

                  Unless Jelsoft took it in mind quite intentionally while designing vB, I am sure there will be minor issues. The reasoning: everything is passed by reference now instead of by value, and if a function or method modifies a function/method argument, then it may cause erratic problems later during the script's execution.

                      Passing by reference:
                      PHP Code:
                      function foo($bar)
                      {
                          
                      $bar++;
                      }

                      $i 12;
                      foo($i);
                      echo 
                      $i
                      In PHP4, that prints 12 as a local copy of $bar is created. In PHP5, it will print 13 as a reference is passed and when $bar is changed, it is referenced to point to $i and $i will change.

                      So, if in vB, something like what happens in foo() is used, unforseen problems could arise.

                        Filburt, thats only for OOP; not functional code; and vb dosen't use much OOP; in PHP 5, that code would still print 12, in both PHP4 and PHP5 you would need:

                        function foo(&$bar) {

                        to make it print 13.

                              And what? I haven't encountered any problems as of yet. No email on the machine though so I might install an SMTP server to test out email.
