    You can use the php5 package from backports.org. Instrctions on how to configure your sources list where provided here:

    http://www.backports.org/instructions.html

    The PHP5 backports package is named "php5".

    PHP5 on debian sarge

    I tried like described at
    http://www.debianhelp.co.uk/php5.htm

    But for some reason I still can't run PHP5. It is installed as shown by apt-get. But when I run
    #php -v
    I get:
    PHP 4.3.10-16 (cli) (built: Aug 24 2005 20:25:01)
    Copyright (c) 1997-2004 The PHP Group
    Zend Engine v1.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2004 Zend Technologies

    Also, when I run the phpinfo(); I get:
    PHP Version 4.3.10-16
    ...

    Someone knows how to actually activate php5? I even deleted php4 with
    #apt-get remove php4
    and restarted the webserver with
    #/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
    Even tried rebooting, but still it didn't work.

    I need PHP5 because I'm using classes etc, otherwise I'll have to rewrite a lot of the stuff I'm developing to run on my vserver.

    You used the command line PHP here. Did you install php5-cli?


    Did you run that on the command line or in a web browser?

    I did run that part in a web browser.

    Anyway, I got it sorted now. I don't know why, but when I went through the steps again, it just worked. I think I might have missed out on the lib module or something. Well, anyway, it's working now, thnx though. :)
