Hi Max,

Sorry this reply took so long, I was away last week and busy with work

The installation of PHP went cleanly, and adding the appropriate lines to
the apache config was OK (although either changing the default so they are
there but commented out or adding them to the php-apache.README would be

This appeared to be all that was necessary for php in Apache to work -

As you pointed out, postgresql is a prereq, but I have to say it isn't the
easiest thing in the world to configure!  (It could do with a -config
script ala sshd-host-config).  But that shouldn't stand in the way of you
releasing this package esp since the meer presence of postgresql is enough
to run php.

Thanks again,
