    There are no pre-built binaries, just source RPMs since this is still deemed experimental. Instructions for building are in this thread.

    Is there a yum mirror somewhere, so i can use yum to upgrade. Im likely to break everything i spent ages setting up if i use RPMS :)

    It's not down, no, but the package names may have changed. Just browse:

    Is it just me or is the listed mirror down? I cannot seem to get yum to upgrade to php5 and mysql 4.x (which i really want :) )

    It's not high on the list at this point int. As folks request it more and standardize on 5 we'll get it in the mix, but at the moment there are other things in the iworx-cp interface proper we're focusing on.

    Hmmm - well now i'm reluctant to install it :p

    Is there any timeframe on when it might be supported - so that if I break my box during the upgrade process, or if a problem arises because of PHP5 --- I *will* still be supported?

    I don't use support often, but I would hate to be on my own if I broke my box somehow

    Thanks for the Sales reply by email Chris.

    Can someone please look into my PHP question? I want to install PHP 5 on my Redhat 9 Sago box -- My concern is that I see instructions on updating my InterWorx box to PHP5 and MySQL 4.1 but is this still deemed experimental? Is there an easier, safer, surefire way of doing this yet?

    Also, Justec mentioned running both PHP4 and PHP5 (as a CGI script) on my server --- is this possible? Is it stable? I need PHP5 to run a support system as I stated earlier. I would also, however, like to be able to offer PHP5 to my web-clients.

    Please let me know soon - i'm anxious to purchase the Support system and start playing with it/ customizing it.

    Hey Justec - thanks for the reply! I saw it the same day you wrote it (subscribed to the thread)

    What i'd like to know is -- are the guys at InterWorx hard at work on updates or something? I've been waiting for confirmation on the PHP upgrade (I need to do it soon! This CGI thing you speak of might be very helpful to me!) But either way, i'd like to hear from them what their suggestions are for a RH9 box and what my options are.

    Also, I emailed Sales@Interworx... about licensing a few days ago as well --- still no word.

    I don't mean to sound impatient, because I'm well aware that any absence from the forums by these guys always results in good news for InterWorx users =) I just wanted to re-iterate that although Justec was kind enough to reply to my question with some suggestions, i'd still like to hear the InterWorx team's take on it =)

    Thanks!

    Also, i know there are some thread on this forum about running both PHP4 and 5. Like leaving the default PHP4 as it then running PHP5 as a CGI.

    Not sure how stable it is to run two PHP on the same server, but if it was that would be the way I would go. I would just make *.php default to PHP4 and *.php5 go to PHP5

    Reviving an old thread :S

    I'm going to need to install PHP5 very soon, because I will be purchasing a Support system that requires it.

    I have a few concerns. I see instructions on updating my Iworx contained box to PHP5 and MySQL 4.1, however, is this still deemed experimental? Is there an easier, safer, surefire way of doing this yet?

    Also, as for backward compatibility issues with PHP 4.x, is this really an issue for a lot of users? I have a few web-hosting clients already and though i'm not completely in the loop as to if they use PHP on their pages (would be easy to check) -- is there a possibility that i could get some complaints out of these kind folks? :o

    I don't want to do anything to upset my customers, however PHP5 will be necessary eventually (preferably soon!)

    Any ideas guys?

    EDIT: Using RH9 on my box

    OK, thanks. Could you clarify which <distro> string I'd need for CentOS 3.5? rhe3x? rhe4x?

    Any plans to put out a supported MySQL 4.1 RPM?
