Don’t worry. If you server runs PHP 4 it won’t stop working on February. But don’t expect any upgrades or support after this date from the official PHP community. It is time to upgrade to PHP 5 and to make sure you (or your webhost or server admin) do so the community is not looking back and now focusing fully on PHP 5.
So if you want to impress your local geek, nerd or sysop simply walk over and casually say: “I assume we are running PHP 5 now?”.
