crap, the apache2 support is still experimental?? that sucks!
OH well.
I do like the improvements they made to installation, while still allowing for traditional manipulation of conf files. Can't wait to test it out fully.

Yeah

But seems, that now PHP can beat ASP with the new Zend Engine v.2

But I hope, that PHP 5, that releases next year in the summer, is standard for Apache 2.0

i was experimenting with ASP for a while, but now i wanna start with PHP because it's built in support for My SQL

is reading the manual that comes from the Site enough to get me started or do i have to get a book to learn properly?

the manual is good only as a reference....
www.devshed.com is the way to go, it's how i learned it, they have material for both the newbie and the veteran.
