Should I Migrate to PHP5?

Saturday, January 26th, 2008

I noted some sites started pushing to PHP5 with the announcement last year that PHP4 would be EOL (end-of-life) in 2007. In truth I understand that there is no longer a compelling reason to remain with PHP4. The biggest obstacle was older software that did not support PHP5 (since version 5 is incompatible with version […]

PHP4 on Fedora Core 6

Thursday, October 26th, 2006

The need for PHP4 has not changed much since Fedora Core 5 (FC5). Hence I have taken the time to update the SRC.RPM that I had originally distributed for FC5 to support Fedora Core 6 (FC6). Included are several security updates as well. FC5 users who used this file previously should update.
The updated source RPM […]

PHP4 on Fedora Core 5 x86_64

Sunday, July 9th, 2006

I do not know how many people require PHP4 on Fedora Core 5. However since I find that I use it, I am providing PHP4 binary RPMs.

Since the release of FC5, the dependancies and outdated linking from the FC3 RPM packages may be difficult […]

PHP4 RPMs for Fedora Core 4

Sunday, October 23rd, 2005

EDIT (Dec 19, 2005):
I have written a formal guide on PHP4 on FC4.
As a followup to my previous post about PHP4 on FC4, I decided to abandon PHP5 altogether. I spent some time to try and get the PHP4 src.rpm from FC3 to compile correctly in FC4. As it turned out neither the GCC4 nor […]

PHP4 on Fedora Core 4

Sunday, October 9th, 2005

EDIT (Dec 19, 2005):
I have written a formal guide on PHP4 on FC4.
One of my biggest difficulties with using Fedora Core 4 was that it packages PHP5 with the Apache webserver. Any experienced person should know that Fedora Core is probably a terrible Linux Distribution to be using for a large scale Web Server on […]
