“If my apps run well on PHP 4, why would i be bothered to take a risk upgrading them to PHP 5?”
That’s what most people says when they’re asked to upgrade to PHP 5.
Well, if you are really a big fan of PHP 4, you should think to upgrade it to PHP 4.4.5, the newest release of PHP 4.x series. As Derick said, this release addresses most of the same issues as PHP 5.2.1.
Anyway, people are still complaining about incompatibilty issue between PHP 4 and PHP 5. They’re screaming about blank pages or bunch of errors found when they’re upgrading to PHP 5.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t really mind with that. Sometime, it is a good thing to have your apps doesn’t work when a new patches applied. That tells us something wrong with our codes. Maybe it contains security holes which shouldn’t be working at all for our own sake.
When your door stop making sound after you change it with a new one, that must be a good thing, right?
