Hi there,

I need to build a CMS and i have very little expierence with php.
I know the main differences betweet php4 en 5, like better support for object oriented programing, exceptions, etc. But i wonder if i even need those things when building a cms.
Help me out please.
Thanx in advance.

CK.

My suggestion would be to build it with PHP4, since a lot of hosts are still hesitant to install and support PHP5. This is especially the case if you plan to give the CMS to other people to use on their own hosts.

Info: PHP Manual

I come from a different school of thought than ober, and that is: PHP4 will soon be 'outdated' and eventhough PHP4 code WORKS in PHP5, there are many advantages to coding in PHP5 from the getgo. Better OO Programming is the #1..

If the servers don't support the PHP 5 you are still SOL though.

SEMPER FIDELIS!

I can't stop you from doing something silly, but at least I can help you do it right.
