Strange PHP problem
 
I'm migrating a mediawiki install to a new server, everything (files and database) have been moved over, however when bringing up the site I'm presented with an error that states the following

Code:

MediaWiki requires PHP 5.0.0 or higher. You are running PHP 4.3.9.

However from the command line I get

Code:

[bleon]$ php -v
PHP 5.1.6 (cli) (built: Jul 31 2008 00:08:07)
Copyright (c) 1997-2006 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.1.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2006 Zend Technologies

Any ideas why mediawiki is still thinking I'm running php4?

hmm perhaps something to do with the .htaccess?

try adding something like this to the .htaccess file in mediwiki's directory
Code:

<FilesMatch .php>
AddHandler x-httpd-php5 .php
SetEnv PHP_VER 5
</FilesMatch>

No change, I'm still getting an error about running PHP 4.3.9 from MediaWiki.

Is there a way for me to remove php4 entirely from the system and only leave php5?

Look at the output of phpinfo() from web page. What version does it output?

Its a machine at work, I'll be able to check it in an hour or so, although I'm fairly certain it will show up as 4.3.9 as it is to MediaWiki. I just need to tell apache to use php5 which is installed on the system.

Confirmed phpinfo(); returns v4.3.9

I am officially a moron... I forgot to reload apache after upgrading php to php5, quick reload fixed the problem...
