    And do they install over the normal ones?
    May be best to wait for etch which is coming. Wouldn't want you to break anything in your configuration.

      While we are running our big vBulletins on plain CentOS servers, we are also running quite a few customer sites on Ensim Pro X. We are running PHP 5.2.1 there as well without any problem. So just in case anyone here needs some help with setting up PHP 5.2.1 on Ensim let me know. It's not Ensim's default and needs to be setup manually, but it's working very fine without breaking Ensim

      Besides that, IMHO it was really about time to announce PHP4's end of life ... let's concentrate on PHP5+

        I think everyone can agree that this has been a long time coming.

        vBulletin 3.6.5 supports PHP 5.2.0 and so should most of those other scripts you are using. All the next releases of distros should have PHP 5 by default which leaves Ensim, Plesk and Cpanel to make the final changes to use each of them as their default.

        Off note: Though this was more worthy of Chit Chat than the other forums since its a fairly significant change.
        This was an April fools joke.

          Never expected Scott would do something like that.

            Indeed, it'd have been posted at php.net if it was real. I think this is the best this year

              No sorry, the person who announced it 'Derick' has already officially announced it will follow the same procedure as with PHP3>PHP4. This was done a bit later as April Fools. Seems we've fallen for it.

                  Are you sure?

                  I spoke to Derick about this when he announced it on IRC and he is the release manager for the PHP 4 series.

                    Some people from Zend/PHPArch were discussing events in their prophp podcast and one of them said this was one of the April fools jokes.

                      I tried upgrading my PHP version to testing to upgrade my board, and broke everything, my Mysql, PHP, my apache now downloads php files... I think I was able to break EVERYTHING lol

                      wtb someone who understands linux, cause I don't.

                      update:

                      I was able to fix it, just needed to add the php module to the apache modules file, just for you to see how nooby I am.

                      The good news is, I updated everything on my system, did a distro-upgrade, running debian etch now. And now I'm a happy user of

                      Apache v1.3.34
                      PHP 5.2.0-8+etch3
                      Mysql 5.0.32-Debian_7etch1

                      And my forum *seems* to be running faster. I just hope I didn't break anything else.

                      I'm a total noob on server administration. I seriously need a hug.
