    if that was towards me: well then. I have always run
    phpsuexec but have found suexec pretty nice. I found myself having more control with suexec.

    what's your exsperience here!?

    I read that phpsuexec is required for php5 but what migrate the system to php5 with phpsuexec if I php4.X with suexec module??

    Upgraded from earlier 5.1 series to 5.2.3

    Still on MySQL 4.x and looking into upgrading to 5.0 of MySQL (but concerned over some BB software, Fantastico installable software etc...)

    Well, the version that these sites are running, yes there is. There are patches available that will patch the problem components so they are php5 compatible, but there is some labour. The labour compounded in that quite a few of the installs are heavily customized. This leaves me to explain to the client that they'll have to spend some money on upgrading they're sites, or look for a php4 server.

    I should look on the bright side and think of all the work I can get updating these sites :)

    On the contrary ...

    PHP 5 with the exception of a very few extremely rarely used functions,
    (not used in any known CMS program old or new), is totally and completely
    backwards compatible to PHP 4 and most any program written for PHP 4
    will run perfectly fine without any modifications whatsoever if PHP 5 has
    been installed correctly on the server.

    That is not to say that you couldn't improve the programs by modifying
    those programs to make use of more efficient PHP 5 functions and
    new programming capabilities.

    However, in terms of just flat getting them to run, no you don't have to
    worry about any modifications or updates in the old CMS programs and
    I am telling you that from experience working with PHP 5 since it's earliest
    beta release 4 years ago on thousands of servers and tens of thousands
    of sites and programs between then and now.

    Regarding your final "a lot of work" comments and as a side trivia tidbit,
    I have a program in my possession that can dynamically re-write any
    PHP 4 specific program to take advantage of PHP 5's capabilities in a
    matter of seconds and can also re-program all the PHP scripts on an
    entire server in about 15 minutes.
