How often does PHP_VERSION get updated ?

Curious, how often does PHP_VERSION get updated between OLS releases ?

I see it's still on PHP 5.3.24. No issues going to PHP 5.5.3 ?
Okay seems Admin PHP is 5.3.25 in OLS 1.2.4 but is 5.3.24, so where does 5.3.25 come from as I can't find any mention of 5.3.25 in OLD 1.2.4 source files ?

Edit: Ah i see from you are actually downloading a PHP 5.3.25 binary

/usr/local/lsws/fcgi-bin/lsphp -v

Looks good so far with admin php at PHP 5.5.3 :)

Build complete.
Don't forget to run 'make test'.

copy compiled php binary to litespeed directory
cd /usr/local/lsws/admin/fcgi-bin
strip admin_php-5.5.3
ln -sf admin_php-5.5.3 admin_php
Your current PHP engine /usr/local/lsws/fcgi-bin/lsphp is renamed to lsphp.old.250813-123603

for secuirty reason, change back build dir to regular user
chown -R lsadm:lsadm /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.5.3
seems I can't edit my older posts ?

Just wanting to let folks know admin console php at 5.5.3 feels alot faster and snappier than on default 5.3.25 :)
