I was tempted there for a second, but no, I'm using RPMs. ;-)

The app that we're about to deploy was written for PHP4 (long story)  
and has not been tested on PHP5, so we want to run on 4 until we're  
sure it works well on 5.

I wonder if that's not more trouble than it's worth? Both PHP and  
MySQL are basically working fine, only the connector libs seem to be  
lagging behind...
Or am I missing something and it's just a symptom of a bigger problem?

Wish I could go to CentOS 4, but our host *major expletive*, and  
others in Tokyo ain't any better. :-(
