PHP 5.0.1 released…and I wasn't paying attention

After waiting around for several weeks with the words “hope to roll PHP 5.0.1 soon” or even “tomorrow,” the day has finally come, and I wasn’t paying any attention because I was too busy at the office trying to wrap things up on my last day.

So, PHP 5.0.1 was released today.

This is a maintenance release that in addition to many non-critical bug fixes also includes new UNIX and Windows installation docs which are now auto-generated from the PHP Manual.

I’ve compiled it without any problems, and it seems to show up as version 5.0.1 just fine when I run php --version:

[ramsey@orome cvs]$ php --version
PHP 5.0.1 (cli) (built: Aug 13 2004 22:53:26)
Copyright (c) 1997-2004 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.0.1, Copyright (c) 1998-2004
Zend Technologies

But, when I load up phpinfo() in a Web page, it shows PHP Version 5.0.0 with a build date of Jul 22 2004 01:09:03.

It seems I’ve had this problem before, but I can’t recall how I solved it.
