    I'm on PHP 5.2 and talked to my host about upgrading.

    I'm on Xenforo 1.2.4 and confused as to whether it will work on PHP 5.4 or 5.5.

    I'm pretty sure XenForo works with PHP 5.4 from doing a bit of searching.

    When you upgrade to 1.3 you will see the following warning:

    Anything less than 5.3.3 will trigger that.

    XenForo in general requires a minimum version of 5.2.4.

    This is why I am asking. I got that warning when installing the beta. When I asked my host about upgrading he said he could but to make sure all my sites are compatible with PHP 5.4 and I want to make sure that 1.2.4 works on 5.4 or 5.5 before telling him to go ahead with the upgrade.

    XenForo works with PHP 5.4 and 5.5.

    I currently run XenForo 1.0.4, 1.1.5, 1.2.4, and 1.3.0 on PHP 5.5.6.

    Did the upgrade and my forum seems quicker and more responsive. Not sure if it's one of those in your head type things but I'm happy.

    Thank you all for the input.

    I personally run on PHP 5.5.8 (current stable).

    I think quite a lot of people are stuck on older versions of PHP (mainly due to shared hosting environments and hosts not bothering to upgrade), which is a shame, really... because there's many improvements made in each version.

    I tend to advise people to have at least 5.4.24 (old stable) – 5.5.8 (current stable) installed.

    PHP 5.4 if you want to use APC session caching. PHP 5.5 if you want to just use the built-in Zend opcode cache.

    It's not in your head... 5.5 is a little faster than 5.4, but 5.4 was a pretty huge leap in speed over 5.3.

    But I thought not all addons necessarily work...

    I wouldn't know.
    You will have to ask the developer of each one.

    I'm on 5.3.19 and never got that message. Everything is working fine on my forum.

    5.3.19 > 5.3.3

    My point was that saying that "xenforo works with PHP5.5" should probably be given the caveat that not necessarily all addons do so if there's a specific addon requirement they'll need to check that separately.

    My statement is still 100% accurate - XenForo does work with with PHP5.5.

    We cannot be held responsible for third party add-ons.
