after the installed PRO version, where is php4 ?!

I got the Pro version.

Once installed (very easy!) I can't find php4 but only php5 (no php4 folder here but only /home/mysite/etc/php5/)

where is the error ?

thanks in advance

just in case you're asking for, I have CENTOS 5.1 "yumupdated" version...

I only have php5 but should this not be done through server template?
I think there is an option there to start with php4 under the -Apache website-Default PHP version-Lowest available
likely you have to edit the server owner permissions so they can choose between the two.

PHP4 will no longer be supported by the PHP people after 2008 -- letting users have it will cause grief.

php4 is an optional package (or set of packages).

You can use yum to install it from our repositories:

yum list php4*

Will show you the available php 4 packages.

We don't install it by default, as it's becoming far less common for scripts to require it, and if you can avoid it, it's a win to do so--but some of our scripts in Install Scripts still haven't been confirmed to work with php5, so it's a bit of a toss up as to the right path. ;-)

Hopefully php4 won't be needed at all in the near future.
