I'll remember to change the paths and password :)

When I started this Apache1 was not recommended for Windows :)
So I went straight to Apache2, but it's like PHP4 and 5 - they may as
well be different products because many people seem to think that PHP4
should continue to be developed - and are doing so with the result that
back porting applications is being a pain :(
I run PHP5 - I don't expect my code to work on PHP4 so don't complain
when it will not ;) - except bitweaver has to work on PHP4 as well
despite the kludges that could be stripped if it was PHP5 only :(

Another religious war - the same crowd that complain that people are not
switching to PHP5 *ALSO* complain that Apache2 is no good. Perhaps if
they actually got round to fixing the faults in PHP5 so that it would
run threaded ....

I can live with Apache2/PHP5 and Firebird and they run as a package on
Linux or Windows without any changes. I can crash them, but I've never
got to a state where a restart did not simply pick up, unlike MySQL and
(I understand in the past) Postgres ;)
