Cron Jobs run with PHP4?

Are cron jobs running on PHP4? I’m having trouble running my scripts:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ‘{’ in /home/pies/sputnik.pl/lifelog/php/libs/xml.php on line 3

which is:

class XML extends SimpleXMLElement implements ArrayAccess {

Any way to run cron jobs with PHP5?

Set the environment before calling php.

export PATH=/usr/local/php5/bin:$PATH

most servers have php 4 in the path. i run my cron jobs in php 5 by specifying the path to php 5, which is /usr/local/php5/bin/php. so an example job that runs at 3:30 am every day looks like this:

30 3 * * * /usr/local/php5/bin/php -f /home/username/cron/job.php

i’m not sure how you would set the path for a cron job as sXi mentions, but that might work too.

Thank you so much.

Generally I would expect my cron jobs to run with the same version of PHP as Apache uses.

There are still people who genuinely want to use PHP4?

Your website runs as cgi, shell as cli.

Web default is v5, shell is v4.
