  02 March 2015 - Conversion to PHP 5.5 & MySQL 5 :: Posted in I am Blog (canceled project)
Yesterday I've been working my ass off to get the I am Blog project compatible with PHP 5.5 and MySQL 5. This seemed easier than I thought in general and from the looks of it the majority of the code (all?) has been updated already. Now it's time to get started on testing the whole thing and see if the new code indeed is working as expected.

I also found out when updating the server side PHP code for TetraGems (of course in a test environment as well ) has some quirks with the SQL commands. In the past I made one specific command to read the scores of the current player and what I thought was right (in MySQL 4 that is) was not. Now it seems that in MySQL 5 the old MySQL 4 SQL command is no longer valid (giving odd results) and the original SQL command is working again as it should

An other problem I encountered is the editor I'm using to write my blog. I've been using the SPAW editor since 2009 already, but the original author has quit coding PHP. Sadly the Spaw editor is not compatible with PHP 5.5 (and most likely 5.3 either) anymore because of an old OOP technique that's used and a couple of obsolete instructions. I've given it a shot this morning to make the editor compatible with PHP 5.5, only to fail misserably. I won't put any more time in it and will look for an other editor to write the blog entries
