Updating to PHP5.5.2.


   At Aug-16 02:13:06UTC, they released PHP5.5.2. So, I downloaded a Thread Safe version for my server (Windows7HP+SP1(x86)). It requires VC11. If you don’t have VC11 on your Windows, you must install vcredist_x__.exe before the PHP configuration.

   Acoording to the ChangeLog, it has some bug fixes and includes the patch for CVE-2013-4248.

   The new php.ini-production has two difference from the php.ini-production of version 5.5.1.
   The line “;extension=php_zip.dll” doesn’t exist anymore.
   Edit typos: mssql.compatability_mode = Off —> mssql.compatibility_mode = Off

   As the official PHP binary includes php5apache2_4.dll, I extract the zip archive and replace all PHP5.5.1 files with all PHP5.5.2 files except my php.ini. Then, I restart my Apache. That’s it.

   If you need how to configure PHP5.5, please see the post. It is for a mbstrings user, but the information gives some help for you.
