Re: Help. My host changed my IP
It appears that there is indeed 'crosstalk' going on with having both IP's active. Unfortunately, since this is controlled by the hosting company, there isn't anything I can do about that. But, I think the problems may be bigger then that...
I have been researching Php version updates. There were a LOT of bugs in php ver 5.3.x but the change that seems to be effecting me (or combination of) is "set_magic_quotes_runtime()" which is no longer supported and causes a Deprecated state for any website using this feature.
There is a bug report at;https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=52221
Quote from the bug page;
"...the silent removal of a deprecated feature could break apps unexpectedly, which is bad because magic quotes has some security impact."
Modules that use magic_quotes that I found so far are;
Xoops 2.3.3b (mainfile.php)
(and all sub pages for OpenCart Version 184.108.40.206)
So, I guess it's time for the upgrade whether I was ready or not. I have read through the upgrade docs. I'm a little confused about the procedure where I would need to overwrite the system, xoops_data and xoops_lib files from the upgrade packages. Do I need to do each one from ver 2.3 through ver 2.5 or can I go straight from 2.3.3 to 2.5.4?
Does anyone know if magic_quotes are used in Xoops ver 2.5+ ?
