On Sunday, December 30, 2007 at 11pm PST, we will upgrade the following:
Where PHP 5.X is installed, this will be upgraded to the latest version 5.2.4. PHP 4.4.4 will be upgraded to 4.4.7 on the server.
MySQL will upgrade to 5.0.27 from 4.1 series. The MySQL upgrade is due to the older MySQL 4 and 4.1 versions having been phased out for support by MySQL last year. Additionally, MySQL 5 is already running on our newest Linux shared servers, so this will allow us to run the same version across our entire Linux server network.
For further information on the now deprecated MySQL 4 / 4.1 please see:
Most scripts should run normally without issues on MySQL 5, however, if you are running any scripts which are older or not up-to-date, please ensure to obtain the most current copy of the script from the script development site so that the script will function properly with MySQL 5. If you have installed the script via Fantastico, please upgrade in Fantastico in cPanel to the most recent version if you have not already done so.
Some scripts such as phpBB or SMF may need patched if you do not have the most up-to-date copy. Please note that running an older copy of any script is a security risk as you should always have the most up-to-date, secured copies of scripts on your account.
Finally, please note that PHP register_globals will be set to Off in our global php.ini file. You can change this back to on simply by adding a php.ini file onto your account with the following details:
register_globals = On
This can be placed into your public_html folder.
Feel free to contact us if you require further assistance or have any questions, or consult our forums at http://lunarforums.com
So (keeping in mind I have no knowledge of php) what should I do. I know how to create a text file and can rename it to php.ini and save it in the public_html folder. Is that it? The text file to say (only) register_globals = On ?
Would really appreciate any feedback, thanks again.
