Php 5 Upgrade Path Options in Pre-Sales Questions Posted January 14, 2007 This topic hasn't just been discussed heavily, it's been beaten to death, and this thread is probably only one or two posts away from being locked just like every other PHP5 thread. However, you do bring up a good point in offering PHP5 on new servers. TCH has announced that Ruby on Rails will only be available on new servers due to the difficulty in deploying it on old servers. The same logic could apply to PHP5 - I don't think anyone would disagree that upgrading existing production servers could cause a lot of headache for the installed user base, but offering it on brand new servers to brand new customers and those that want to migrate seems worth considering. That said, there is a lot on the plate right now with all the things mentioned in the Big Announcement so I wouldn't hold my breathe.
