Ah. I see that you are trying to port TO V4 ...

(Yes, simplexml is PHP5+ only).

PHP4 is end of life and though I have my ZCE which was gained based
upon PHP4, I've not really used it for the last many years (looking
back it is probably 5 years or so).

Depending upon their hosting, I would recommend one of the following options.

1 - Upgrade to PHP 5.3.5
2 - Dual install PHP 5.3.5
3 - Create a new vhost with PHP 5.3.5

I'm guessing upgrading straight away is a no-no.

Running PHP4 and PHP5 SxS is very simple (I used to run PHP4 ISAPI,
PHP5 CGI and PHP6-dev CGI - on the same Sambar Server - on Windows

The ease I had in running multiple versions of PHP on Windows would
suggest it should be pretty easy to do for non-windows.
