cristianpark wrote:correct me if I'm wrong, but you can recompile PHP (with the same version but with bug fixes) bundled with XAMPP (as you do for install extensions like PECL). Talking about updates, if you are using GNU/Linux and install from repos, you'll face the same because the versions depends on your S.O version (let's say Ubuntu 11.10 have PHP 5.3.6-13), if you compile manually PHP/Apache, you have to do new compile new version again (as far as I know) and you end in the same situation.

I know, but they aren't applyed mostly on enterprises, they aren't updating/upgrading on regular basis.

How will you know wether I'm asking for support on a production or development environment? .

Zend Server CE has deb/rpm packages but it's no easy install on any distro that uses another package system, also, if you install the package like that, you have to upgrade when needed and so on, just like the problem with XAMPP IMHO. I can read between lines (when you talk about Windows version) that in a GNU/Linux OS, XAMPP is usable on production environment with the changes of services unwanted, am I wrong?Altrea wrote:Personally I don't understand why people don't use the correct tool for their tasks, especially if they are available for free (Zend Server CE is certified and tested for production environments, and nearly as easy to install as XAMPP).
