We have quite a few Joomla and custom sites running on php 5.2.5 with mysql 5.0.92 on Centos 5.6. If we were to upgrade the server to php 5.3, what are the ramifications? I'm sure the Joomla people will have that under consideration if they don't already but what about my custom sites using the mysql_ extension? Do I need to see if there is a Centos upgrade as well and MySQL? Is there somewhere someone can point me to that would help? I mostly just write the code but we have servers in a data center that we are free to do what we want with. I wouldn't want to be stuck with the new Joomla software ready to run on something we haven't deployed yet and get left in the lurch. Just need an action plan.

I would wait and see. We are still debating the subject. No decision was really made on going forward with this proposal.
Anyway, in the worst case, you will only have problems if you do not control the PHP version you are using in your servers and your hosting company forces you to use a PHP version without the mysql extension.

Thanks. I have full control over our servers but I do like to keep up as much as possible with the latest versions. I looked at our php and it is not compiled with mysqli, so I suppose I could start there...
