I've decided it's time to take PHP5 for a spin, but all the hosts I use are
still only on PHP4, so I need to keep PHP4 running and operational on my dev
My dev environment is a Windows XP Pro Machine with Apache 1.3.33 and PHP
I'm sure many of you have PHP4 and PHP5 running on a Windows Box with Apache
as your server. I'm particularly interested in being able to use ports to
decide what version of PHP I am running, so I can just add a port number to
see how a page will perform in PHP5. ie: http://randomsite/index.php ->
PHP4, http://randomsite:81/index.php -> PHP5
What solutions have you guys come up with?
Re: PHP 4 & PHP 5 at the same time
I've been looking into this, and found a solution - I have 2 Apache Services
running (both Apache 1.3.33) I've named one service Apache which runs on
port 80 and has the php4 module loaded, and another service apache-php5
which runs on port 81 and has the php5 module loaded.
Can anyone see any problems with doing things this way?
