I've just been emailed from my site host stating they will upgrade the servers to PHP 5.4.19.
We're hosting a number of sites with them and all range from EE2.2 - EE2.5.
The thing that sparked my interest, over and above due diligience, was these comments:
- Safe mode is no longer supported. Any applications that rely on safe mode may need adjustment, in terms of security.
- Magic quotes has been removed. Applications relying on this feature may need to be updated, to avoid security issues. get_magic_quotes_gpc() and get_magic_quotes_runtime() now always return FALSE. set_magic_quotes_runtime() raises an E_CORE_ERROR level error.
- The register_globals and register_long_arrays php.ini directives have been removed.
Does anyone know if I should be on the look out for issues with the sites we're hosting here or should it be plain sailing ?
