    I recommend to use php5, php4 gets slowly outdated.

    There are only a few apps that run on php4 but not on php5... so if you are positive that you need none of those I would go for php5.
    Joomla, according to my knowledge, runs fine on php5...

    However if you ever get in the need of requiring php4, there is a howto on how you can run both on your (debian) server... I think it's a howto from Falko.
