Hi, i've only recently started programming in php and am in the middle of developing a LAMP driven site (http//www.pipod.tv). I have been testing it locally using php5 and things have been going well but when I uploaded it the the machine it will be hosted on it didn't go quite as smoothly as planned. After a bit of debugging i managed to locate simplexml_load_string as the source of my problems. Basically its a php5 thing and the host only runs php4. Is there a php4 equivalent or am I going to have to right a new xml parsing class?
