Re: stable or testing?

Simon, I am also a recent convert from redhat to Debian. It would be good to 
share experiences of moving production systems over. I have got setup with 
'stable' but I have had to upgrade php / apache / mysql. For mysql I managed 
to use backports. For php4 / apache, I compiled from source. 

I would be interested to hear about some of the issues I should be aware of 
when compiling software from source alongside apt packages. What would the 
recommendations be?
