Php Upgrade - Backward Compatibilty

Date based stuff needs a timezone setting in 5 yet I found it puked on 4. There's loads of things it could fall over on.
In the end I went through every single function in the scripts and made a list of them with which versions they work on, I also built an installer to do the grunt work for the end user and that also performs a check for support of all the needed functions.
The best thing I can suggest is to get some PHP 5 web space and upload everything there to test rather than upgrade PHP and possibly have things suddenly stop working.

Tis a very daunting thing to do with 40+ sites on the server. Also a mammoth task to exercise it all in a mock-up installation. A list of tripwires would have been ideal, but I thought it would be too much to hope for.
What I will probably end up doing is as you suggested. I will build a test site incorporating ALL PHP stuff that I can remember using and upload it to PHP 5.3.x space. Then hopefully, all will be revealed.
