    I was considering installing the sapi php via the wiki, but instead of using /php5 using /usr/local so there is only one php for the system.
    I have noticed one thing though when you do php -v with my old php it lists all features like
    root@cp [/usr/src/php-5.2.3]# php -v
    PHP 5.2.3 with Suhosin-Patch (cli) (built: Jun 21 2007 02:51:18)
    Copyright (c) 1997-2007 The PHP Group
    Zend Engine v2.2.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2007 Zend Technologies
    with eAccelerator v0.9.5.1, Copyright (c) 2004-2006 eAccelerator, by eAccelerator
    with the ionCube PHP Loader v3.1.24, Copyright (c) 2002-2006, by ionCube Ltd., and

    with Zend Optimizer v3.2.8, Copyright (c) 1998-2007, by Zend Technologies

    When I do version with php5 i get this
    root@cp [/usr/src/php-5.2.3]# /php5/bin/php -v
    PHP 5.2.3 with Suhosin-Patch (cli) (built: Jul 14 2007 03:11:04)

    Well everything looks good, displays all version info
    Only problem is
    its loading the /opt/lsws/php/php.ini instead of the one in /usr/local/lib, Ill try to link it

    Ok, all is well now. I had to link /opt/lsws/php/php.ini to /usr/local/lib/php.ini
    but that is linked to the zend php.ini, wonder if that is too many links to follow?

    You can specify a "-c <php.ini path>" parameter from the command line of lsphp external application.

    well, the linking seems to work fine. I may do it when I get some free time, working fine now so I wont mess with it for a bit
    Working great so far. I think if someone is gonna totally convert to litespeed this is the best way

    UPDATE: Ok I see what you are talking about now , I changed it to /usr/local/lib. Works no probs, well no reason it shouldnt lol .But when you are runnng hosting box worry a lil ;)

    btw, site looks great now
