Question

How do I determine php vs. used in images prior to install?

I need to find the best OS that I can use which still uses php 5.3.x… as a site I am moving will not yet work on 5.4 and I don’t have the time to fix it prior to the move.

Is there a way of finding out which images I should use?

You can find the versions of php including in various Ubuntu releases here: <br> <br>https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/php5 <br> <br>Debian releases here: <br> <br>http://packages.qa.debian.org/p/php5.html <br> <br>and Fedora releases here: <br> <br>https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/php <br> <br>So, both Debian 6 and Ubuntu 12.04 provide you with 5.3.x versions of php. <br> <br>I don’t know of a site that provides an overview of the packages in different versions of CentOS, but I do happen to know off hand that CentOS also provides php 5.3.3. <br> <br>
