Re: Can't use MySQL 5.x Client with PHP 5.x
I tried using the php5, php5-mysql and libapache2-mod-php5 packages from
http://debian.sipo.nl/ (and other php5 modules from there too), and at first
glance they appear to work perfectly.
I just used backports for php5 and mysql5, now I actually have mysql5 from
backports and php5 from sipo.nl.
A night of compilations, dependencies etc has been averted! :)
