mixing apache 2 and php

am i to assume that the warning:

"Do not use Apache 2.0 and PHP in a production environment neither on Unix nor on Windows. "

found here:

counts for all versions of php 1.3.x, and that they are not to used with any version of apache 2.x?

That warning has been out there for a while. And the web page you linked to was supposedly last modified on 2004-03-11 (though I couldn't tell you whether that was the main part of the page or the most recent user note at the bottom)

I've been running PHP with Apache 2.0.45 for some time and can't say that I've run into any trouble with the combination. (No weird errors, anyway. Only my bone-headed programming errors. :-) ). Of course, I'm not beating on it terribly hard so perhaps that's why it's been trouble-free for me. Often, you see that sort of warning/caveat when the people who have to support a certain combination of software (or software and hardware) haven't had time to stress test it to their satisfaction and they don't want to get blamed when something goes awry. Stick with Apache 1.3.latest if that warning really gives you the willies.
