[Plugin: JW Player Plugin for WordPress] Install doesn't recognize PHP version (7 posts)

    JW Player won't complete install, instead placing a banner across myadmin panel that reads "Sorry, the JWPlayer Plugin for WordPress only works with PHP Version 5 or higher."

    My sitehost is using PHP 5.2.16. Any help is appreciated!

    @steveboyett,

    It's unusual that the version would be reported incorrectly. The plugin uses PHP's built in version_compare function to check that the version is higher than 5.0.

    Where are you getting the PHP version number from? Have you tried running phpinfo() on the server where your WordPress site is running?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your reply! Phpinfo reports v5.2.16 (http://www.steveboy.com/blog/phpinfo.php). Still a mystery to me. :)

    Could you also try checking the output of phpversion() as well? That's the exact function the WordPress plugin uses.

    Thanks.

    I'm sorry, but I don't know how to do that. I'm not an IT person, and a Google search revealed a ton of different code that doesn't mean anything to me.

    Solved! There was an .htaccess file on my blog directory that had your WP admin page set to use PHP4 instead of PHP5. Thank you again for your help. Looking forward to installing JW Player now!

    Glad to hear you got it figured out.
