  • PHP 5.2 or better

    I installed this with the ezPublish 4.2.0 full install on CentOS 5 and on Ubuntu 8.04LTS. Ubuntu 8.04 LTS provides PHP 5.2 while CentOS provides PHP 5.1. On CentOS I received errors while accessing the default site but not the site_admin. I checked my Apache logs which revealed this: [Thu Feb 04 21:37:15 2010] [error] [client] PHP Fatal error: Class 'DateTime' not found in /var/www/html/lib/ezc/Feed/src/structs/date.php on line 102, referer: As it turns out the DateTime class was not available until version 5.2

      I should have checked ezPublish System Requirements first. Please disregard.
