[pmwiki-users] PHP 5.3

Hi David,

I had the same problem in March this year - I wasn't familiar too with 
the PMwiki internals...

First make a backup of your working site under PHP5.3 to your pc's hdd!

This is what I did and what helped in my case:

SiteAnalyzer didn't bring me foreward; only the advice to update 

I checked some other issues -> no result! Now I made the following: I 
made a backup of my broken site, deleted all pmwiki files on the server 
and installed the current pmwiki2.2.113 to the server - then I copied 
the upload and wiki.d archives from my backup to the new installation 
files on the server and after some file updates everything works fine 
now ;-)!

Thanks for your support - now I'm really familiar with pmwiki's entrails...

Regards, Michael

Thanks, Simon,
I will test that. Meanwhile, as a workaround, I moved with my site 
www.miclangschach.de/index.php to a different provider, where I had the 
choice to go back to PHP5.3.29 - and voilá, everything is working: 
www.michael-lang-schach.de (under PMWiki 2.2.14, but this will be 
changed ;-)) - Regards, Michael

Making sure all software is up to date is a great idea if you have 
forewarning of any server or PHP updates.
