PHP3 was designed to run in php 3. If the extension is php3 just change it to php. I have been able to run most of the scripts with little to no tweaking in php4.

If you are now using php5 on your server, then you may run into difficulties. PHP5 seems to be an entire new beast with a very strict set of codes.

I right now just upgraded my php4 to php5 and am running into that problem.
