ereg deprecated in php 5.3

    I’ve tried to upgrade my php version from 5.2.9 to 5.3.1 and there’s an important modification in this version : ereg functions are now deprecated. Some wordpress’ functions doesn’t work : ftp update for exemple.

    You should replace all ereg functions by the preg equivalent.

    I’ve listed the file where the ereg functions are used :

    wp-admin/includes/class-ftp-pure.php
    wp-admin/includes/class-ftp.php
    wp-admin/includes/class-pclzip.php
    wp-admin/includes/class-ftp-sockets.php
    wp-includes/functions.wp-scripts.php
    wp-includes/class-phpmailer.php
    wp-includes/class-pop3.php
    wp-includes/gettext.php
    wp-includes/rewrite.php
    wp-includes/functions.wp-styles.php

    This is one of the reasons that a lot of software packages don’t yet support php5.3.x; another is the problem of E_DEPRECATED being an error instead of a warning, and not ignorable in php.ini. If you get a whole truckload of inexplicable error messages under php5.3, this is why.

    The only thing that is affecting me is updating plugins.
    When I choose the FTP connection type the page goes blank and the plugins don’t update.
    I’m wandering if there is any patch for this, because manual updating sucks
    🙂

    I’ve downgrade to PHP 5.2.10 and everything works correctly now…
    Maybe WordPress 2.9.1 is not fully compatible with PHP 5.3.1

    Does anybody know if WordPress 3.0.1 is compatible with PHP 5.3.2?

    Thanks.

    No, WordPress 3.0.1 is not compatible with PHP 5.3.2.
    Mine hoster has updated the PHP version to 5.3.2 so I had no choice. You have to suppress the ‘E_DEPRECATED’ notices. When ignoring this you can get something like this:

    Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /home/users/ftpuser/domain.com/wp-settings.php on line 204
    Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /home/users/ftpuser/domain.com/wp-settings.php on line 219
