    Hello all,

    I have a new Cobalt RAQ3i dedicated server with 64 MB RAM and 13 GB. I want to install PHP and MySQL and I wonder if I should install PHP3 or PHP4.

    Any suggestion....?

    Thanks in advance.

    Toni

    I would suggest you to install PHP4.

    It's all depend on your personal taste. If you don't think you will need the new functions of PHP4 at this moment, install php-3.0.16.tar.gz.
    The latest 4.0 version as of now is php-4.0RC1.tar.gz (RC stands for Release Candidate). So the full relase 4.0 should be released very soon.
    Keep in mind, both PHP3 and PHP4 can coexist on the same system, so upgrading isn't much to worry about in the future.
    If you are worrying about Apache also, PHP module can be built into Apache using apxs without recompiling Apache at all.

    You should install Apache in the first place, do not jump ahead to install PHP at all. Assuming you have Apache installed (compiled from source).
    Get php-3.0.16.tar.gz and do the following:
    tar -zxvf php-3.0.16.tar.gz
    cd php-3.0.16
    ./configure --with-apxs=/full/path/to/apxs --with-mysql=/path/to/mysql --with-system-regex

    Do the same procedures for PHP4. (you may install php-4.0RC1.tar.gz or wait for 4.0 full release)
    You need to find out the path to apxs and mysql. Example: /usr/local/apache/bin/apxs and /usr/local/mysql

    Correction, php-4.0RC2.tar.gz just released today. http://www.php.net/version4/downloads.php
