i found this out on my CentOS box when i also easyapache'd to 5.3.1 as well as my local WAMP install.. twas a bummer..

and as for php 6, they are gonzo bonzo alltogether..

as far as drupal 1 of other patches and another(joomla too), they HAD problems and i'd expect them to have fixed it by now.. note: that the symptoms vary from 'not working at all' to 'bothersome warning messages'.. YMMV

wordpress dodged the deprecated issue, by being ahead of the curve.. wink

offending functions that currently exist in 7.5.4.2 and are deprecated in php 5.3+ are:

safe_mode()
set_magic_quotes_runtime()
ereg()
eregi()
split() <-- used all over!
spliti()
---

for me, since i control my box and whatever php version runs on it.. it was a simple choice.. php 5.2.12 also since you gain nothing significant by running 5.3+ anyway..

it is your choice on your box(es), however and good luck wink


I hate to bump an old topic, but this is the most recent one I've seen with the error I am seeing.

My sites were moved to a new server today, the old server had outdated software that couldn't be updated. When I loaded one of my old forums, voila! errors about the php version now. The oldest version of php on the new server is 5.3.something.

Several errors were about the smarty classes - so I updated to the current similar version (2.6.30). It cleared up those errors, but I am seeing 3 or 4 left related to some deprecated methods/functions.

Is there an update out that allows .threads to run on current versions of php? Or is that not the issue?

bah, nevermind, I see where it should have been fixed in 7.5.8, I will check my version and update if it needs it.

I have the latest UBB.threads (7.5.9) running on PHP 5.6 without any problems; what builds are available on your new system? I'd recommend PHP v5.6 as it's stable (unlike PHP7) and it is a lot faster than PHP v5.3. Also, keep in mind that UBB.threads v7.5.8 was primarily pushed out for PHP compatibility, and includes some security fixes as well.

Quote:
[root@server ~]# php -v
PHP 5.6.25 (cli) (built: Aug 20 2016 09:39:48)


Note that UBB.threads v7.6.0 will REQUIRE PHP 5.3+, you can grab the test tool at UBBWiki: UBB.threads v7.6.0 System Requirement Test 20160222. The installer/upgrade tool will die graciously and present a warning for users not running PHP v5.3+.
