PHP version is less than 5.2.4 but plugin says great (8 posts)

    Excellent: Your server is running PHP version 5.2.17 and MySQL version 5.1.52 which will be great for WordPress 3.2 onward.

    As of 3.2, you’ll need to be running PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5.0.

    My host doesn't meet the minimum requirements. Does anyone foresee any problems?

    I am also getting this on Dreamhost.

    Your server is running PHP version 5.2.17 and MySQL version 5.1.52 which will be great for WordPress 3.2 onward.

    I am not going through with the update.

    People - is there some problem with basic maths today? Last time I checked, 17 was a bigger number than 4. Therefore 5.2.17 is later than 5.2.4 and you can upgrade.

    No, need for insults. $2.17 is less than $2.40. Perhaps we are reading the versions wrong.

    Anyhow, thanks for setting us straight.

    Not intended as a direct insult. If it was perceived as such, I apologise. But have you any idea how many of these queries I've fielded today?

    No, I don't know how many of these questions you've answered today. If it is truly a common question, maybe the plugin or announcement should be amended to communicate that "5.2.17 is greater than 5.2.4." #efficiency

    Thanks for your time, esmi.

    This link should dissipate any doubts left : PHP versions
    PHP 5.2.4 is from 2007, and 5.2.17 from 2011.
    That's why the plugin says you've got the requirements.

    A working blog after the update is another problem though :/
