can I update this version under the Linux without any problem
If it is all static HTML, the impact will be little.
Without knowing what your 'programs' (or scripts) are it is impossible to say correctly the answer. I am not trying to be difficult, but there are so many variables.
If the programs are from others, it is completely impossible to say, without doing your research on requirements.
IF the programs are in PHP, then you will likely have to at least fix your warnings level. There is a switch that allows the current Linux/Unix versions to run PHP 4 - whihc you cannot do on Windows.
IF you use Perl, the impact may be lower, as the language does not change so rapidly.
If you use MySQL - you may need changes to settings like type= for database connectors, as type= is deprecated now, and engine= is the correct method.
If your programs are solely for your own use, then its one thing, if you are developing for the use of others, its a different case. If you are developing for others, it would be irresponsible not to bring the code up to date.
May I ask if you have pinged 127.0.0.1 or localhost???
- Code: Select all
[jonb@localhost ~]$ ping 127.0.0.1

That would be the right thing to do first -
There is one thing I know for sure - we cannot provide support for a version that is 6 years old, too much has changed.
