PHP Version Finder – Updated to v 1.0.3c 12/9/2010

Find what version of PHP your script requires. When asked what version of PHP is required to run our scripts we didn’t have a definitive answer. We created this script to determine the PHP version, and then we took it to another level by seeking out deprecated functions. But we didn’t stop just at that. We included PHP Extensions and language constructs. We almost called it good at that, but then we wondered… how many times we used these functions. Excessive use of the same function can be degrading on performance. Monitoring how many times a function is used can help determine if a “User Created Function” can be created to reduce code and increase performance.


PHP Version Finder tracks: 3044 PHP Functions, 2260 PHP Extensions, 23 Language Constructs, 19 Alternative Suggestions, 7 Tips/Tricks/Notes. (plus 69 Experimental, 20 Deprecated, 47 “svn” functions)
The code does NOT have to be complete nor functioning. It does not even have to make sense. As long as it is between <?php and ?> it will be evaluated.
Crippled Demo - The demo has been crippled to prevent people from using it rather than purchasing it.

Stop Guessing!

Truth be told – most developers “ball-park” what version of PHP is required by recalling a few “key” functions they used. With PHP Version Finder you can know for sure what PHP version is actually required!
Don't Guess! - Run PHP Version Finder on your script to know for sure what verions of PHP is required to operate your script!

Deprecated Detection

PHP Version Finder lets you know if any functions you used are deprecated.
Deprecated Detection - Check your scripts for deprecated functions

Two Versions

The PHP Version Finder does NOT require a database. However, for those of you who would rather use a database, the script does include a database version.
Optionhal Database - PHP version finder does NOT require a database, however, an alternative version is supplied for those that do want to use a database.
Why Two Versions?
It all comes down to numbers. If there are lots of PHP functions, the NON database version is faster. If there are only a few functions, the database version is faster. How much faster? Well, it’s measured in micro seconds. So not really noticeable. After we made the database version we decided it was not worth the effort as its performance was not noticeable different. We decided to include it because it was already built – a freebie if you like.


Installation is simple. Upload the directory, edit two settings and you’re done.
Installion - Upload 1 directory to your server, edit one config file and your ready to go!


You can upload a file from your computer, scan a file or entire directory on the server, or paste code in a box for processing.
Multiple Inputs - You can upload a file, scan a directory or check a block of code.

Alternative Suggestions

If PHP Version Finder finds functions that are deprecated, it will give you alternative suggestions that could replace the deprecated function.
Alternative Suggestions - You can make your script
For Example:
if you use file_put_contents (which requires PHP 5), PHP Version Finder will let you know that you could use fwrite instead which could lower the required version down to PHP 4. Not only that, but there is a note attached to file_put_contents that shows you the code to use to make file_put_contents backwards compatible.
