XML Extension missing in windows installation....

P: n/a
Hi all,
I've an annoying problem with my php install, I hope you'll be able to
help me. I'm developing some scripts for a site, so I've a XAMPP
install on my windows box, where I develop using php, mysql and
apache. Then our hosting provider has linux boxes with its own
installation. Luckily, both XAMPP and hosting prov. are using php
version 4.4.7. Unfortunately they've not the same extensions... In
particular I was thinking which XML extension would be more supported
around... But for example DOM isn't avaible, DOM-XML is on the hosting
provider but not on my box, XML Parser is avaible on both installs...
but it's a pull parser and I'd like to avoid it... So what to do? I'd
like to use DOM-XML, but it's not working on my box. I can't find a
way to install it on my existing xampp install... DOM is for php 5...

Moreover I read on PHP site that php4 will be discontinued in 2008.
This will mean that most hosting providers will switch? Do I have to
worry that I'll have to modify my code very soon??? Please let me know
what you think about this and send your suggestions.

Thanks, Dario.

Most providers already switched to PHP5+MySQL5.
Most good providers.

No. You must already have Your code PHP5-ready, since friday Jul 13, 2007.
