Count me in - I definetely would also throw some ─ in to prevent a forced upgrade to 4.1.x!!

Well, this is it then, upgrade from 4.0.19 to 4.1.x has just become a necesity.
A nice weekend project, lol. Let's hope it goes without too many bugs.

That's what we are trying to say here, it ISN'T a necessity, we are going to come up with a way to run X-Cart 4.0 on a MySQL 5 server. Upgrading a highly customized store is something not many people want to be forced to do.

Also, I think it's important that xcart 4.0 users not on Emerson's servers should consider their situation. Emerson has given his customers plenty of prior warning that he is eventually going to have to upgrade his servers. But other hosts may not upgrade their servers, so the shops will still run - however, what is more likely is that hosts, particulary none x-cart approved hosts, will suddenly do this upgrade to php5/mysql 5 with little or no prior warning - giving little time to upgrade x-cart and suddenly people will have no shops.
It is worth people checking with their hosts what their plans are.

Although I am currently in the process of upgrading anyway, I would still be very interested in helping/contributing to this project.
Let me know...

Very good point Paul

This is not isolated to EWD. ALL hosts are going to have to upgrade this year.

We've always ran on PHP5 (with the exception of our development box that runs PHP6 but I won't go into that fun little mess). I stopped supporting PHP4 when PHP 5.1.0 was considered production stable.

I informed this morning with our host and they going to upgrade in a few months to php5/mysql5.
But after the upgrade we can choose if we want to use php4 or php5.
Unfortunately that isn't the case with mysql - they are going to upgrade everybody to mysql 5... :?

Makes sense, MySQL 4.1 is considered old production now by MySQL AB with 5.0 considered current production and 5.1 development and 6.0 at alpha

Re: Upgrade your store
 
I was going to direct these questions at Emerson (EWDhosting.com) via his normal support system, but felt it may be better if I added it to this thread, as it may save Emerson answering the same questions over and over, and possibly others will benefit, that are with other hosting services, and in the same position.

It is to do with servers.
The way I understand it:
V4.0.x = php4/mysql4
V4.1.x = php5/mysql5
Correct?

Can you run php4/mysql4 and php5/mysql5 on the same server?
If I upgraded from my 4.0.17 to 4.1.x, would I have to shift servers at this point of time?

Or let me put it another way, If the productive members of this thread are able to come up with suitable patches to enable V4.0.x = php5/mysql5, then would I have to move to a new server at the time the patches were done?

I must admit, when I got Emerson's message yesterday, I went into a cold sweat, and felt rather ill for a while. At 65, perhaps I am getting too old to handle this. I had hoped that the version I got less than 2 years ago, would give me a bit more mileage.

I too am prepared to contribute funds to assist this project. I am also very open to alternatives if I can find someone who can do a version upgrade to a modified site, in a reasonable time.

And thanks Padraic for making me aware of this thread, and possible resolution.

Cheers Don...
