Go PHP5


Support GoPHP5.org


PHP developers cannot leverage PHP 5's full potential without dropping support for PHP 4, but PHP 4 is still installed on a majority of shared web hosts and users would then be forced to switch to a different application. Web hosts cannot upgrade their servers to PHP 5 without making it impossible for their users to run PHP 4-targeted web apps, and have no incentive to go to the effort of testing and deploying PHP 5 while most web apps are still compatible with PHP 4 and the PHP development team still provides maintenance support for PHP 4. The PHP development team, of course, can't drop maintenance support for PHP 4 while most web hosts still run PHP 4.

  1. Webhosts CAN upgrade their servers to run PHP4 en 5 side by side, by means of running at least one of them as fast-cgi module. It would be good if PHP.net spelled out this upgrade path to help break the loop you sketch.
    Sadly, so far there's mostly silence over there and here and there some remnants of the old myth that cgi-mode is vastly inferior to mod_php. With the progress made in the field of fast-cgi and the additional safety cgi mode offers for the users of shared servers, it may well be that cgi mode is actually the superior solution for shared web hosts nowadays.

Rules of war (in a nutshell)

https://youtu.be/HwpzzAefx9M Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
