Installer does not warn when webserver has PHP 5.1.x only.

I run into this trap after a successfully installation of 1.17 (trunk) on a webserver with PHP 5.1.x only.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function array_fill_keys() in /var/www/html/kunden/ztd/w/includes/resourceloader/ResourceLoader.php on line 516

array_fill_keys() was introduced in PHP 5.2.0

Version: 1.17.x
Severity: normal

bzimport set Reference to bz27781.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST). says we support 5.1 or later (5.2 preferred). Looks like it needs to be 5.2 or later, or fix that method call

It seems easily to add an wrapper for this function, see the note in if we want to support PHP 5.1.x.

I think we should support 5.1.x for the last time in 1.17, providing a back-compat version (or fixing the array_fill_keys functions to do something else).

For 1.18/trunk, I think we should bump the requirement to 5.2.x (5.3.x preferred, of course).
