  • Nick Lewis: Drupal is Part of the Problem

    Until this post by Nick Lewis, I've been in the camp with the folks that say PHP-based content management systems such as Drupal should be compatible with both PHP 4 and PHP 5.   After reading his post, I'm convinced he's correct that new development should be geared toward PHP 5.  It's hard to fight for the future when you continue to hold on to the past...

    Those visiting CMS Report yesterday evening into this morning likely found that they couldn't reach the site.  My apologies!  I run CMS Report and a few of my own sites on a virtual private server.   Sometimes I just get an itch to go bleeding edge on the production server to get the adrenaline...so why not?  What harm could I really do to my Drupal and Wordpress sites?  Well...the hole I dug myself into was a little bit bigger to climb out then I had expected!  Worse, the only site I…
