We would like to announce that our new PHP5 platform (previously referred to as PHP5 ITK) is ready to be deployed globally. This new PHP5 platform provides suPHP functionality and has been specifically patched to allow common LAMP applications to work without any modifications.
Key Features of the New PHP5 Cluster
– $_SERVER[“DOCUMENT_ROOT”] contains expected value
– $_SERVER[“REMOTE_ADDR”] contains expected value
– Files owned by user
– Mail functions operate as expected
Upgrading from PHP4 to PHP5
Because the PHP team (http://us.php.net/) announced an official end of life for PHP4 in August of 2008, Mosso | The Rackspace Cloud will no longer be supporting the technology. All existing PHP4 sites will be upgraded to our new PHP5 platform.
Sites currently hosted on our legacy PHP4 cluster and will be migrated to the new PHP5 platform beginning on today.
