  • Which ver VB? standard or w/php3 ext.

    I have noticed my server PHP version is 4.0.4pl1

    I have been using the default install of VB, should I start using the one with 3.0 extensions? I am just trying to get everything to run as fast as it can.

    Thanks for any help.

    PHP 3 is inherently slower than PHP 4.X. You should continue to use the files with the PHP extension so that they parse under PHP 4.04 and not PHP 3.

      So would that mean

      to use the one with 3.0 extensions and my server would automaticly run everything under 4.x?
      I have always used the default VB download, all files end with .php

      I am not sure what I should do if anything.

        It's simple. If your server is running PHP 4, then use the files with the 'php' extensions. If it's running PHP 3, then use the files with the php3 extensions.

          Ok so I have the default

          Sounds like I am already going as fast as I can. Guess I thought there would be a download with 4.x extensions ...

          Thank you
