The php developers do not support anymore php 5.2.17. However, normal apps are using this php instead of the new one, 5.3 branch (Whose idea was drop security support for 5.2.17? ). Normally we compile php from source code. However the official source code is outdated. Is there any public repository out there with backported patchs?
edit: I mean, my brother's repository is not valid. We are asking if any public and well known repository is available.
