Instead of trying to piece bits of posts together, contact your host to get the definitive answer. Ask to have your domain setup with PHP5 and Zend. Once that is done, run the Tester script to confirm that it's done, and then setup the calendar.
I have heard back from GoDaddy. Here's what they said:
"Zend Optimizer™ for PHP4 and GD Library are installed on all Linux Shared Hosting accounts. GD Library is a PHP library that affects image resizing, among other things. Zend Optimizer™ works with Zend Guard™ to enhance the performance of PHP applications. Zend Guard protects the source code of PHP applications by distributing them without revealing the application's source code. Zend Optimizer runs and optimizes Zend Guard's encoded files, which enhances the performance of PHP applications.
Customers can upload newer versions of Zend Optimizer (and other PHP modules) and reference the path to their files.
This will not work with PHP5. If you attempt to use the installed version of Zend Optimizer with PHP5, it will cause problems.
If you want to use your own php.ini and Zend Optimizer, add the following to your php.ini:
I already knew all of this because of the forum you linked me to. So I followed that forum's instructions explicitly to get a newer version of Zend working with PHP5 (evidently with GoDaddy we have to do this ourselves). I now have Zend working alongside PHP5, evident by my phpinfo:
However the calendar tester script still does not recognize this:
Since I had Zend working, even though the tester didn't recognize it, I decided to reinstall the calendar again. I removed the old installation, downloaded the auto-installer for Zend for PHP5, ran it, and it says this when trying to run setup:
I obviously have a new enough version of Zend installed and working. I don't feel like I've done anything wrong. Any ideas? Thanks again for the help ve9gra.
