Over the last few weeks as the sponsors have been using Tasks Pro™, most of the issues I’ve been dealing with have been due to differences in PHP and MySQL versions.
Just a reminder to all you developers out there, don’t underestimate the importance of testing on a variety of platforms and configurations.
In particular, I’ve had a number of PHP session handling issues. Also, MySQL 4 allows you to do a JOIN during an UPDATE; MySQL 3.23 doesn’t.
There are a lot of moving parts for LAMP web developers:
- PHP and MySQL version irregularities
- Server platform differences (Linux/Mac OX X vs. Windows)
There is no magic bullet – read, code and test…
