for the latest release (2.5) you additionally need PHP >= 4.3 and MySQL >= 4.0.

I didn't found any of these programs pre-compiled, so this is the
biggest problem currently. If you have the Developer Tools installed,
try compiling this programs yourself.

I don't see it happening. Sad There is an old port of PHP 3.x something on the archives. But MySQL would be a HUGE undertaking. NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP is missing too much in the way of POSIX compliancy and the Developer tools are pretty old.. If I thought it was do-able, I would've already tried. Kinda like Firefox/Thunderbird, etc. I love the challenge in compiling stuff, but sometimes you have to just accept there's better/faster/newer systems that will do the job. I've ran my web site on OPENSTEP 4.2 for quite sometime, and it does a great job. A NeXT system does ok serving up stuff on the low end scale, but can you imagine how quick you'd run out of swap space w/ 128 megs of ram trying to run MySQL plus PHP4. It wouldn't be pretty. It would be interesting to see how long it took to start up though. Wink Take care.
