  • optimal versions of php and mysql

    We are planning to selfhost our vbBulletin installation. Which versions of php and mysql optimal?
    PHP 5.3 and MySQL 5.1 are the latest point releases but for example ereg_*() functions are deprecated in 5.3 and so we'd probably have to turn of deprecation error notifications if we go with 5.3 but are there any other "gotchas" related to using php 5.3? Same thing with 5.1. I have not used MySQL since MySQL 4 (but since vBulletin doesn't run on any other backend we are henceforth forced to use it now), is there any reason not to use MySQL 5.1 vs. 5.0?

    with php 5.3.1...if you enable zlib.output_compression in your php.ini and then use flush() anywhere in your php code, it's gonna spew garbage
