I'm beginning a new PHP project on a new Computer. Previously I have had problems with versions of PHP and MySQL when trying to communicate between the two. The main problem was once that I had to use OLD_PASSWORD('password') so that I could access the database through PHP.

Now with this new project I was wondering if anyone can advise which versions are best to use together?

I use PHP5 and MySQL5 with Apache2.0.x

If you use PHP4 and MySQL5 then you need to use the OLD_PASSWORD function when setting a password for mysql users, as php4 uses an older mysql client. I dont get this problem with PHP5.
