PHP released 5.5.0

I thought I’ll blog on this update as it is a major milestone for PHP developers. I’ve got it up and running on my development machine using the regular instructions as ever. No problems found when running my usual PHP based applications.

On another positive note, I prolonged my hosting contract with macminicolo.net for another two years. If you like problem and hassle free hosting for your Mac there is no other alternative…

6 years running and slowing down

Just a small post today as today I got a popup from iCal showing me that it has been 6 years since I started this site (moving from the earlier switch.richard5.net, which is even older). It’s been a great journey this far with interesting people who I’ve “met” online, some great reactions, donations for which I’m all very grateful.

There is however a but. Regular visitors will have noticed that I’m not posting every update anymore and skip versions. As challenging and exciting as it was in the beginning it is becoming more and more repetitive and there are a lot of other challenging and exciting things which I want to explore. Personal time has gotten into the mix as well, my daughter is growing up beautifully and requires more of my attention, and getting older means time is moving faster then it used to do.

So apologies but this trend will continue and will get worse, posts will be irregular. But if you have a desperate question and need some advice you will know how to contact me. I will still answer your questions when they are relevant to the purpose of this site. But I won’t go into any new avenues, don’t ask me how to install a git server for example.

PHP released 5.4.13 and Apache was updated to 2.4.4

Two updates in one blogpost. Just to save me some time I’m mentioning these together.

The PHP update is a security update and a bug fix release. The security issues in question are: CVE-2013-1643 and CVE-2013-1635. Read the ChangeLog for all the information.

Apache is updated due to a security issue and I’m advising you to upgrade. I’ve tried it on my test servers without any problem. The security issues in question were:

  • SECURITY: CVE-2012-3499 Various XSS flaws due to unescaped hostnames and URIs HTML output in mod_info, mod_status, mod_imagemap, mod_ldap, and mod_proxy_ftp.
  • SECURITY: CVE-2012-4558 XSS in mod_proxy_balancer manager interface.
