The stable release of PHP 5.0.0 has been out for a little while now, since July 13th. I compiled and started using it on the 14th I think. I was glad to see that there’s a hardened-php patch for PHP 5.0.0 already.
I tried using the grsecurity kernel patch for a while but it would cause my network card that’s connected to the internet to go down, for some reason. I think the grsecurity patch was blocking access to something in /proc. I dunno, I’ll probably mess around with it a little later on.
