    Seriously guys, maybe I didn't convey my point clearly enough. Without that effort behind the scenes, the situation would been much worse. But I get it, you're free to believe whatever you want and have your own opinions on the matter based on what you can see.

    and all that behind the scenes hard work some are doing is completely ruined when people like @BirdOPrey5 and @Mark.B come on forums like this and engage in back and forth conversations with current and former customers while being able to offer no immediate relief to their concerns. I use "engage" loosely as well because it feels, most of the time, they are being overly aggressive toward customers. It is especially bad when one of those employees has a shady history on forums.

    It could be worse means nothing when the latest version of the software is useless to customers and the future is basically gone. That is what it feels like as a customer and no "It could be worse" is going to make the customers feel good about it.

    Thank you George for addressing the issues in a normal way. The problem is that we the customer can't see or hear what is going on behind the scenes, so we would never know that it could be worse then it is now. Its also a reason why people are leaving the not knowing what is coming or what will be next, you need some guide for your website, but at the moment that will not happen. Does it mean that Xenforo and IPB do it better well they at least communicate with the people and put out blogs, video and topics about new stuff to come. That does not mean it good but much much better then vBulletin where at the moment no information is given or you get answers that you think you better could have said nothing at all. I know that staff needs to wait for management, but why would staff continue like this where you can see that people are unhappy and attacking staff on everything. Our opinions are always based on what we see in the open we have to we do not have access to everything. People are avoiding vBulletin 5 at the moment the people that visit here and on TAZ for example want development on version 4 but that is not happening (as far as we can see) many because of this are jumping ship either to IPB or Xenforo depending on their needs. Many people here myself included warned vBulletin that something needed to be done to get vBulletin back on track and get support from the customers but in our eyes nothing has changed its still that we need to guess what will happen next or that a new addon is more important then fixing or giving much asked features or improvements.

    But back on topic in my next post.

    George i have a question about the hosting you say in "Centmin Mod Test Blo" called Ramnode are they good hosters. Will your script work on the following if i setup under CentOS:
    For me its all ready a win situation because i go from 16 dollars a month on hosting to 7,50 dollars hosting with almost the same specs except the OS that i need to run.

    Also have you plans to support PHP 5.4 and higher anytime soon because resources are lower on those versions.

    It saddens me that a thread about PHP versions, with no relation to vBulletin, has deteriorated into a vBulletin hate thread / sinking ship / FUD discussion. *unsubscribes*

    It already supports PHP versions higher. Read over the site thoroughly.

    I cleaned out some of the garbage. If I missed any let me know.

    I am going to say this one more time. If threads continue to degrade to bashing vbulletin because one of the vbulletin support people happens to post in it then I will have no choice but to start to ban the worst offenders.

    If you have a vendetta against vbulletin or one of the vbulletin staff members then put that person on ignore and refrain from getting involved in any discussion that person might be participating in. This is happening too often and I as well as the community are tired of it.

    There are numerous threads on here about vbulletin. This is not one of them.

    Back on topic. I just installed 5.6 to test it out on the dev server. Haven't found any problems yet.

    back on topic, yes it will work fine on Centmin Mod see http://centminmod.com/phpfpm.html - defaults to PHP 5.3 but can be upgraded to use PHP 5.4 or PHP 5.5 via menu option #5. If you choose to upgrade to PHP 5.5, script will detect PHP 5.5 upgrade and prompt you to make a choice if you want to use PHP 5.5 Zend Opcache or stick with APC Cache. If you stick with APC Cache, it will install APC Cache 3.1.15-dev build for PHP 5.5 support http://centminmod.com/phpfpm.html#php55 (some folks still use data caching in APC Cache which Zend Opcache doesn't support) :)

    There is 5.5 running on our servers by default. But - when buying vps - there is an option to choose between 5.4 and 5.5

    PHP 5.5 is better than other PHP versions.
