in the list of requirements, it is said that Piwik should work with PHP 5.3.3 until May 2015.
Today I updated six Piwik installations for several customers from version 2.10 to version 2.11.1. After the update, one of the installations didn’t show any widgets. I tried several things including a restore from a backup and trying again, and I compared the installation with one of those that worked just fine. Only when I switched the PHP version from 5.3.28 to 5.4.30, Piwik worked again.
I can’t switch to the newer version permanently yet, since the customer uses a very old script that hasn’t been adapted yet (and the vendor doesn’t exist anymore). Has PHP 5.3 compatibility been dropped earlier than announced or should I look for some configuration settings (.htaccess, php.ini, Piwik) that have to be changed to reanimate the Piwik installion?
Thanks in advance!
