I know you miss me now
okay, i will not be any more headache, I just want to discuss downgrade issue with you and take your advice:
I have been with xampp 1.7.7 with windows server 2008 R2 for 20 days (migrating from usual installation of apache and php4/mysql 4)
I saw xampp nice and stable, robust, support available from good guys like you
to be honest, I ran into some troubles like to adjust the settings and add all necessary mods... etc
conclusion and problems:
On this windows server must run an application that require zend loader and that is not supported by thread safe - xampp with php 5.3.8 and when I installed the ioncube version of this application it gave me some errors related to php 5.3.xx that is not solved yet by php.net
Also another application which needs less than php 5.3.x
I read a lot about running php4 and 5 on the same server but nobody encourages that
I have installed hMail server also and works fine
Now and my environment is almost ready! to speak frankly I don't want to change this setup up to now but the application which require php version 5.3 or less is mandatory, and there are a lot of errors coming up like deprecated functions and stuff that only happens with php 5.3...
so, if i now go back with xampp to earlier stable version, is zend going to work fine? what basically i will lose?
of course i will make backups.. but what you think that i have to lose if i tried the version 1.7.3 which looks stable as i see in your signatures moderators here @AF forums?
btw: i couldn't find trusted source for version 1.7.3, or a link from the main page for previous version of xampp?
your advice please
