OK I should have read further, but bottom line ... PHP5 should be your starting
point! And personally I'd ditch the VM stuff altogether.
Apache/PHP/Jboss/Firebird will work fine in one machine, but when I need better
performance, Firebird gets it's own machine. Two smaller machines would be a lot
more efficient and can be configured so that either take the load if one has a

eaccelerator is also a better match for PHP5.
