MySQL 5 & PHP 5 for Production Server


I will be implementing a production web server using either Mandriva 10.1 or Slackware 10. These typically come with MySQL 4.1 and PHP4. Is there any problems with replacing these with version 5. Is this recomended since MySQL 5 is still in 'release candidate' version?

MYQL 5 RC is still a development release, so I wouldn't use it on a production server.

Just a note: Apparently. there are still some issues with Apache2 and PHP 5, something about a threading problem.

Don't know if it's still true tho

This issue has been discussed a lot, but most major Linux distros have moved to apache2 and I have noticed a few major sites using php5 and apache2.

If I were running a production server, I would make the change, as PHP5 has some really useful features, and I hate running old software

Im finding that trying to get mysql 5, apache2, and php5 working together on my centos 4.1 box is a complete pain. Im getting closer, but its been a day now and i still dont have it working with myql 5.

Im setting all of this up on a testing server that were going to use to develope on.
