If you're just playing around or testing stuff out, PHP 5 beta is fun, but don't rely on it yet. I would recommend that you roll back to PHP 4 if you're having any problems.

Also, I believe that MySQL support exists for PHP 5 - it just doesn't have the bundled library. I think that if you install the MySQL libraries and specify their location using --with-mysql=... you should be fine.
