For those server experts on the list, if you were setting up a brand new server, which versions of software MySQL, PHP, or other stuff would you use so I don't have too many problems today, but I still have the flexibility to upgrade tomorrow.
Does it make sense to go ahead and install MySQL 5 and PHP 5.2?
Thanks in advance for your help,
you haven't mentioned which OS you plan on using - If you decide to use Windows/IIS then make sure you don't use a php version higher than 5.1.2 (all PHP versions higher than this have some wierd issues when running IIS)
If using Apache, you should be fine with PHP 5.2 and Mysql 5 (quite a few people are running Mysql 5, not as many running PHP 5.2 yet though.)
Sorry. I'll be using Linux.
I currently setup all linux boxes as per below (works fine with 1.7 Moodle)with a hardened PHP installation
Kernel : 2.6.9-42.0.2.EL
Apache :1.3.37 (Unix)
If going dedicated, I would not even consider windows...
I would use the lastest "Stable" versions of PHP, MYsql and Apache
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who gave me input.
I hope everyone has a happy holiday season.
