The final release of 4.2.5 will be next week.
This allows vB4 to run on PHP 7.0 & PHP 7.1


JFYI, I have PHP 7.2 installed on a test server, and changes in that will upset vB4.
I'm leaving IB, so I wont [officially] work on any 4.2.6, and I'm certain no one else will either.

Do you know on top of your head if the deprecations listed here https://wiki.php.net/rfc/deprecations_php_7_2 are causing these errors/bugs?

Paul M 01 May 2017 21:35

They are caused by two of the accepted RFCs for PHP 7.2

https://wiki.php.net/rfc#php_next_72

Specifically the "Deprecate and Remove Bareword (Unquoted) Strings" & "Counting of non-countable objects".


The forums limp along with error messages (Posting mostly breaks, esp via quick reply) - the ACP is rendered inaccessible.

I think I speak for all VB4 holdouts when I say that I deeply appreciate your efforts on our behalf. Thank you.

Also, I think you need a more appropriate avatar. :)

I just did a search for php7 with vb4 and ended up here. Looking forward to trying out 4.2.5

Thanks for the efforts!

The final version of 4.2.5 has been released today.

Great work Paul. Are you taking your talents elsewhere?

Paul M 20 May 2017 18:16

As far a vbulletin is concerned, nowhere other than here.

I will continue to maintain vB3 (and vB4) for myself, and maybe others.

Good, because no one is more qualified to do so.

Paul I took your advice and purchase my hosting from vultr.com.. First time that I've ever installed anything on a a server like this. six hours playing around with the PHP and finally got it to work correctly on Version 4.2.5.. The speed is freaking quick stop by and check it out fitnessslam.com.

If I run into any issues with the PHP on version 4.2.5 then I will come back here and post.
Wish me luck!

Yep, the performance difference of shared hosting vs VPS/dedicated server is significant. :)

Once you learn how to use Yum, and set up Apache etc, its really very easy.

I can build a working server & system from a raw (new) instance is less than 1/2 hour.

My forum (running 3.8.11) uses four Vultr servers, once common nfs/data server, and three web servers to share the load - tbh, most of the time three is overkill, but it does mean its slightly more robust, and I can take one of them out of service if I want.

That's correct the speeds are freaking quick and it took me about 12 hours to get everything up and running and to fully understand what I was doing as I've never messed around with any kind of cloud or VPS hosting at all, basically the two things that was frustrating was trying to understand the PHP settings along with the DNS as my domain name was hosted somewhere else.. I was constantly testing my DNS web settings to make sure everything was configured correctly online, what a pain! I know its a additional charge for a IPv4 IP. Still doing my research to see if one will be suitable enough:confused: :D I was having issues with a 500 error codes when posting and I tracked it down to the a PHP issue and fixed it. 500 error codes don't want to tell you Jack! Anyways, luckily I had the patience to understand what was going on and now I am amazed with the performance.

You will continue supporting vB or this version is end of vB4 and it will not be supported any more?
