    No it is not, try to install magento and generate an invoice or the order mail? Normally there is an error thrown, because of a bad implementation of Zend_AnyModule::IForgotTheNameOfTheMethod If you fix this little "bug" it might work. Commented Aug 9, 2013 at 14:13

PHP 5.4 is not officially supported by Magento.
See the PHP compatibility in this list of requirements. If you still want to try it, you might get into trouble. Maybe the answers in here help you.

  • Thanks. I got it running under PHP 5.4, but had to do some small fixes to get it running smoothly. At least PDF printing throws an error that needs a quick fix. Also there was a problem with duplicating a product that required a fix.
