        to make it print 13.
        I suppose it works like Java, then, in that primitives (and strings) are still immutable.

          Yea... I am truly excited for PHP5's OOP... Supposedly it is a lot like java, and I love java's structure and organization... Sure it's a little picky, but I think it's a real advantage once you get used to it.

                I'm all into getting image manipulation to work at the moment, but I'll have a look at that, thanks!


                [edit]hmmm... I think that's still above my level of knowledge... I don't code in classes...

                    I installed PHP5 onto my dedicated server yesterday evening. I first upgraded from PHP4.3.6 to 4.3.8 and backed-up my php.ini and httpd.conf files. I had to install libxml2 from source as it is required by PHP5, but apart from that I had no problems. It is just a case of copying your ./configure line from your phpinfo() output and appending --with-mysql to ensure you can use MySQL. Then make and make install and everything is done for you. All that is left is to comment out the PHP4 module loading in httpd.conf and restart Apache!

                    Everything on my site seems to be working without any problems at all - my custom CMS, vBulletin, my mailing list system, phpBB (forum template styles demo).

                    And I have noticed a speed increase I'm now looking forward to tweaking it and trying out the new features...particularly MySQli.

                      I'll try out PHP 5 on an old 1000mhz pc which is on my loft.

                      For now iam reading http://www.php.net/manual/en/migration5.php which ist kind of interesting in my eyes
                      That's the end of that!

                          Has anyone looked into SQLite? It's truly a wonderful addon to PHP in my opinion. Extremely versatile, and great for smaller applications that people want to be able to use without the extra process of setting up a database.

                            Seems like a waste of space to me - I wouldn't use it at all because it cannot match MySQL. But I suppose it could be useful for small apps...although MySQL could do the job better.

                              Even when mysql is unavailable or the overhead of running a seperate daemon is not needed?

                              MySQL is useful for alot of things, but not for a small application that doesnt need a full blown engine. MySQL couldnt do a better job at using less memory, cpu and disk space
