Do to not being able to run IPB 2.2 I have switched php versions several times.
One of the things I noticed was no matter what version I was using ocPortal was not effected.
I started my site using 5.0.5 and was running 2 sites with ocportal - one running IPB 2.1.7 the other with smf.
My host upgradded me to 5.2 which took longer then expected as they said it was going to be done that night how ever it was not but they did do it the next day.
I was then able to run IPB 2.2 with no problems or errors and was very happy. How ever I noticed my IPB 2.1.7 was not working but running the cache tool cleared and fixed that up. Any way Later on after talking to a friend and helping her with her site and showing her the demo of 2.2 and that I got it to work it no longer worked. I looked at my cpanel and I was back down to version 5.0.5 I submitted a ticket and asked to switch hosts so I said yes as long as it was 5.2.
I was then switched to a new server which I started looking at to day and was a little bit PO'ed that it only had php 4.4.4 and my IPB 2.1.7 site was completely broken and the recache tool did not fix it, the only fix was to reinstall it which I did indicate to my host. How ever 2.2 worked but was slower then krap. and ocPortal also worked fine so did smf.
I told my host and They set me up with php 5.2 how ever the server still also has php 4.4.4, which I guess is fine cuz now I have the ability to test software that is only made for php4 and I can also switch back and forth for testing purposes but I was still upset that they did not listen to me about wanting php 5.2 when moving.


I will still say I like my host as they did finally get my php 5 but I am not as impressed with the support as I once was do to not being listened to about the php 5.2 during the switch.
I know I told them that as long as I had php 5.2 the switch was fine.

Any way I am posting this to show you some good came out of my experience with my host and trying to get ipb 2.2 working on it as I did not want to leave them.


Down town host is still a good host though and they did seem to think beyond my needs and got me what I needed instead of what I wanted which is good.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Not really, I am used to it. Most are from posts made here and at other sites.

what do you mean spammer?
This is not spam and was posted here to let you know that ocPortal is pretty tolerable on php version changes which is in fact a good thing.
