I got this email from my hosting provider:

Beginning May 31st, we will be removing PHP 4 and older versions of PHP 5,

replacing them with the newer, more stable, and more secure PHP 5.3.10."

I have EE versions:

1.5.2 and 1.6.8.

Will either of these versions experience problems after May 31st for me?

Hi Ryan 2010,

The requirements for ExpressionEngine 1.x state PHP 4 and up, so you *should* be OK.

I would suggest that you update to version 1.7.2 just to be in good shape. There have been a few security enhancements since either of those versions of EE were current.

Cheers,
