PHP 5.5.9 and PHP 7 Support for SMF 1.1.21
« on: April 05, 2019, 04:09:50 AM »
I simply wanted to position it accessible that i have converted SMF 1.1.21 over to mysqli, backported and replaced some deprecated preg_replace calls, and greater to make it paintings on personal home page five.five.nine and php 7.0.  i've examined it very well from scratch (set up and functionality).  it really works super.

but, SMF might not let me release it for some weird cause.  this is too bad due to the fact quite a few us have vintage boards with custom functionality and subject matters that we might not be changing / upgrading.  it's entirely feasible to do though.  i have my SMF 1.1.21 variations transformed on my web sites.

i take advantage of 2.x for new web sites and tasks, however for my antique stuff, i will preserve it operating no matter Hypertext Preprocessor's breaking adjustments (terrible programming on their part).

SMF will not let you release it, it violates the licence.

Good luck rewriting all the extra stuff that will break in PHP 7.2, and it’s a shame you can’t benefit from all the cool stuff coming in 2.1.

Additionally, while you may have patched the php version code.... I guarantee that you are missing security fixes which were made to 2.0.x but not backported to 1.1.x
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Even if the mod patches core, it won't patch mods and addons, and I still maintain the best way to deal with this is to plan out the upgrade to something that is actually maintained and doesn't have known security holes.
