Before you install PHP 5 and try to configure with MySQL, think again… as you will feel like doing :banghead:
So beter stick to older versions… until some person really provide you a perfect solution. As some forums are full of suggestion but nothing seems to work.
I have finally installed PHP 4.4.2, MySQL 4.1.19 and Apache 1.3
Ya ofcourse, there is one short-cut… TRY WAMP5 from Sourceforge.net, as it will auto-configure eveything 🙂
