Hi Dana,

I wouldn't use those. I.e. by adding the list to sources.list you'll  
get problems with mysql, in case you installed it.

Furthermore the php5 package doesn't provide all php features you  
could need.

Rewrite doesn't cause any problems here (running Debian Srage stable  
with Apache 2 package and self- compiled PHP5).

Why are you using a package from experimental? I'd suggest to switch  
back to stable ASAP.

PostgreSQL 7, which is provided by stable is all you need to run  
WiFiDog.

Well, I had a similiar error when enabling eAccelerator (a cache and  
optimizer for PHP).

But I checked your phpinfo() ... you didn't install it - so no  
problem here.

Well, as I said, I'd suggest to switch back to stable ... install the  
Apache 2 package and compile PHP5.

If you want, I can send you our documentation for this.

Or I could send you the configure paramters for the PHP5 compilation  
at least.

Cheers, Max!
