          Yahoo "Standard" and PHP

          I want to ping Yahoo hard on why they advertise PHP/MySQL support, but infact, they only support some features of PHP. Here is a pointer to their PHP support matrix.

          http://us.1.p2.webhosting.yahoo.com/v/php/support.html

          Can you please specifically tell me what features Yahoo is lacking that vBulletin requires. I want to request they change the PHP support. Yahoo really should get on board!

            One of the Devs will need to check that. All I know is that whenever I try to work on a Yahoo hosted forums, there are multiple problems and their phpinfo page purposely hides all the relevant details needed to investigate and fix this problem. As far as I'm concerned, they are not a professional hosting service and should not be considered as such.

              I heard heard a lot of bad things about yahoo as a hosting provider, but I never knew they disabled PHP functions.
              I don't think this is acceptable to advertise PHP when they are disabling functions needed by popular scripts like vBulletin.

              Thanks for posting about this Steve, good information to remember.

                Scott just checked that list and he said it should be fine for vB. Nonetheless I stand by my assessment of Yahoo as a host. They are really not on par with true web hosting companies.
