I've just discovered the version of php on my (CIHosted) server is PHP 3.0.15. Assuming phpw3t won't run on this should I try and get them to put PHP 4.0.3 on there? Will this have to replace the current 3.0.15 or can they both be there side-by-side? If it replaces 3.0.15 will stuff written for 3 (like phpMyAdmin) not run any more? If I do need it and they won't do it, is there a standalone way I can install it just on my domain?
- You need PHP 4.0.x to run w3threads - Putting PHP 3.x.x and PHP 4.x.x together is not a trivial task. Most of ISP will replace PHP3 by PHP4 - Some PHP3 scripts may need small modifications to be compatible with PHP3. The very last phpMyAdmin is compatible with PHP4.

You can run PHP4 and PHP3 side by side. There is a section of the manual to make this work. But 99.99999% of stuff that works on PHP3 works on PHP4. phpMyAdmin works just fine in PHP4. I also recommend that after a bit you install Zend Optimizer with PHP4. It helps out.
