WP Blipper Widget problems: PHP?

I got my WP Blipper Widget to work locally. I was very pleased with it, apart from the issues listed on GitHub. I tested it on this website, where it worked and looked great. Then I migrated my web-hosting from DreamHost to Digital Ocean, and all went badly wrong.

Colin wondered if it might be something to do with the version of PHP. I am using/have used the following:

  • iMac: PHP 5.5.27 (cli) (built: Jul 23 2015 00:21:59) — ok
  • MacBook: PHP 5.5.24 (cli) (built: May 19 2015 10:10:05) — ok
  • DreamHost: PHP 5.4.42 (cli) (built: Jun 16 2015 00:23:52) — ok
  • Digital Ocean: PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.11 (cli) (built: Jul 2 2015 15:23:08) — not ok

I created a blog on a subdomain of this one still on DreamHost, where the plugin works as well as it does on localhost.

I wonder if the fact that PHP on Digital Ocean has that bit about Ubuntu in its version makes any difference.
