Could 'hosting' troubles be PHP 4 vs 5 issue?


#1

Add me to the list of customers whose (current) sites are completely down this morning. …going on hours now.

One thing I’ve noticed, though, is that an older site I have ON THE SAME SERVER as my newer sites runs just fine, while the newer ones are completely inaccessible.

The only difference between the sites that I can think of: the older one was set up to use PHP 4, while the newer ones all use PHP 5.

Anyone else seeing this?

I don’t think so, I have PHP4 and PHP5 regardless all my sites are inaccessible as of this morning, (and the saga continues)


#3

Anyone have any thoughts on why the one older site ON THE SAME SERVER as my newer sites would work just fine, but the newer sites won’t even come up?

I believe all new sites are now running on apache 2 whereas older sites run on apache 1.3. It could be that your machine’s apache 2 is broken but the apache 1.3 is ok. Check the response headers on your sites (when the new ones are working again) and compare. Or check the announcement/newsletter archives and see when the change was made and whether that timeline makes sense considering when you set up your sites.
