as of Phorum 5.0.17 PHP >= 4.3 is needed because of:

* Support for more compact, single file modules
(from Changelog)

Function file_get_contents() in include/admin/mods.php, line 57 needs PHP 4.3...

The case is not tooo serious because only the Admin-Modules-Part is concerned, but if you want to add modules or config existing ones, you have a problem.

So if you are still running PHP < 4.3, as e.g. 4.2.2 as in RH 9.0, just put this line


right after line 55:

} elseif(is_file("./mods/$entry")){

Preferably add a comment concerning PHP version ;-)

This is a rather ugly way, surely one can do a better workaround and still use the "single file modules" feature... but at least the Admin-Module-Section will work the old way...

If we see a lot of reports about this, we may change it back.
