Seamless PHP 5

Unfortunately as I learned about a week ago, PHP 4 and PHP 5 don’t happily co-habitate. However, the switch between the two is about as seemless as possible. Compiling PHP 5 with the same config string as I used for PHP 4, I was able to switch over by simply changing a comment in my httpd.conf file from:

LoadModule php4_module modules/
# LoadModule php5_module modules/


#LoadModule php4_module modules/
LoadModule php5_module modules/

Linux isn’t always great, but sometimes it sure rocks my socks.

    and you might say I have a “huh?”/”wtf?” relationship with Linux.

    Because of that, I think that linux will expand up from the embedded device market towards the desktop, instead of tackling the desktop all at once. I’ve never heard of anyone who had a serious problem running a Tivo.
