Many hosts have both but usually 4.x is the default. Try adding
Code:
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php

to your .htaccess Wink

Great to see MyBB doing this. It is decisions like these help promote PHP 5. It's ridiculous how many hosts still only support PHP 4.

Well, everybody jumped on the fact that my host is still using 4.x but ignored my question, so I'll post it again. Toungue

Maybe this is a stupid question, but I don't know much about php versions. Why is it 5.2+ instead of 5.0+? Is there not a 5.0 or 5.1?

If so, will people really not be getting support for anything before 5.2, even though they are using php5?

i do think there was a 5.0 do not know about a 5.1 any ways maybe because its that 5.2 has any any better features in it.

The simple fact is that it's not that hard to upgrade minor versions. It's only the big leaps which you prepare for. So therefore all hosts that don't have php 5 will be upgrading to the latest (which is php 5.2) and those that are responsible will update anyway. See my drift? Your not going to update to something old would you?

5.2.x is just the most recent version.

PHP 5.2.0 was released in November, 2006. The majority of PHP 5 installations will be running PHP 5.2.0+, because most upgrades have happened within the last year.

PHP 5.2.0 contains some of the necessary functions we hope to make use for. If however, people are running anything less then we'll consider adding some type of backwards compatibility to it (not for PHP 4, however)
