I am the founder of eFFiciencyHub.com (started in 2000). I am not a developer but an entrepreneur and want to know:
What is the best and most cost-effective method to update our PHP 4.2 code: do we start from scratch or is there a way to update the code to the latest. If we start from scratch, should we consider a different (quicker?) language?

You can get your reusable data from the system then fine-tone it to meet up the new standard you have in mind. Well, considering a quicker language is a function of the nature of system you wish to build... Thanks.

From a cost saving perspective, it's cheaper to upgrade.If you choose to upgrad the version, programmer need to be patient and professional.Save the old version and test the new code again and again.If they are not professional, because of the version difference, the site will appear a variety of unexpected error tips, let the customer feel as if the site is broken can not be used normally, customer experience is not good.
If your company is strong and rich, you can choose new language development, but this means you need to recruit new language programmers, including the front end and back end, even the artists will have to increase the workload, after a few years you will still face the problem of upgrade version.And your old programmer can't be fired, because now the site has to operate and maintain.
So all in all, it's much cheaper to upgrade to the current version of PHP, but if you don't care about the money, it's ok to get a new language, or even a new version of PHP, and do it again.
