Subject Re: Instructions: Installing PHP 4.2 on Apache 2
Date Mon, 29 Apr 2002 15:55:53 GMT
Nice guide.  To answer you question on why the php
release notes don't covers this is because the PHP
people (from the site) stated 4.2 on apache2 is still
experimental with OFFICIAL support coming with 4.3
(slated for SEP02).  Glad though you provided a
walkthru though as I had been avoiding apache2 until
php was a proven thing on it.
