PHP 5.4 has finally been released as a stable version. It will no doubt take a while for shared hosting to upgrade, but for those of you under control of your own hosting environment can enjoy it now.
Say hello to traits, a short array syntax, $this for closures, and a built-in web server for testing.
Say goodbye to safe mode, magic quotes, register_globals, and import_request_variables. Wonderful news!
You heard it right, you can now run PHP 5.3 applications on HostMonster. I’ve only testing this on HostMonster, but I would assume the same applies to BlueHost.
Simply add this line to the beginning of your website’s root
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php53 .php
After making this change you can test it using
phpinfo() and it will show you the version at the top, and as of the time of this post Hostmonster is keeping right up to date, running version 5.3.9.
This is exciting news for Zend programmers and other PHP developers ready for the upgrade. Enjoy!
Recently Facebook underwent some design changes, now whenever you login to Facebook you are dropped on the Welcome page. Also if you are already logged in and go to http://www.facebook.com it also drops you on the Welcome page.
But when you click on the link for News Feed the URL registers as http://www.facebook.com. But for those of us who prefer the News Feed when going to the normal Facebook URL this is annoying, and I’ve found no help or settings that allows me to choose the default section that Facebook will initially load.
So after some messing around i found that the URL for the actual Facebook News Feed:
Just click that link once you’re logged in to Facebook, bookmark the page, and you’ll be able to go directly to your News Feed using that bookmark; that is unless Facebook makes changes rendering this method useless.
It works for me, hope that information helps someone else.
