Not at all. I just wanna say that php4-apache2 package that I build is
not working as expected!.. no more. By the way, I did re-install
apache1.3 and phpwiki and everything is fine (maybe a grant problem with
mysql but solved in a second;)

So you think I'd better try to get php4-apache2 working with
apache2-mpm-prefork and build php4 with apache2-prefork-dev?

I don't want to make a flamewar but maybe you can try java ;)
