XAMPP(lite) & PHP 5.3 – Deprecated Messages in

  • Peter A. Gebhardt


    Dear fellow users,

    after following _ck_’s advice to use still – and after starting over with my bbPress project already assembled under 1.02 – I ran into the following problem today:

    After installing XAMPPlite (Windows32) v1.7.2, several routines of bbPress started to flag the ‘Deprecated’ errors.

    My provider 1&1 ist using PHP 5.28 still – but nobody knows when they would upgrade to 5.3 finally .

    Any advice how to tackle the challenge – not only the messages?

    TIA (from Germany)

    When trying to tackle the “Deprecated” warning, by using a similar functions as an “one-to-one” replacement instead of say “eregi()” in below code, an error is returned:

    Warning: preg_match() [function.preg-match]: Delimiter must not be alphanumeric or backslash in ....htdocsversambb-versbb-includes[em]gettext.php on line 295[/em]

    I’m not a php-programmer, but I start to wonder how much coding effort would be needed to switch to the required new php-functions?

    Could somebody provide a matchmaking list eventually (or point to helpful further info), of what should (can) be replaced by what function? The php docs – when looking up the functions in question – are not of much help describing the transition issues.

    At least the Errror Reporting could be turned off:

    Others are also scratching their heads already …
