We'd the same concern with Debian: Mysql 4 + php4 vs Mysql5 + PHP5...
We opted for Vservers which allowed us to use the native packages (so
no compilation ;-)). We installed our machines like this:
- On the host latest version of distribution (Etch for us). The
machine had only the requiered packages.
- On the virtual servers an installation on the native distribution
(sarge for us) + myqsql, php and apache.
For mysql packages have look at
There some source packages too. So if you don't want to use the
Vservers, you tried to compile those packages directly...
Hope this helps,
