Updated BitNami PHP platform stacks with MySQL 5.5

We are happy to announce that we have updated our BitNami PHP platforms Stacks (LAMP, MAMP, WAMP, LAPP, MAPP and WAPP) to include MySQL 5.5. This has been widely requested by our users as it significantly improves performance, specially on multi-core systems. The default storage engine is now InnoDB instead of MyISAM. The stacks also include now the MySQL native driver for PHP 5.3, which removes the need to link external libraries and improves performance in many common scenarios.

In addition to MySQL 5.5, the following major components were updated:

  • Apache 2.2.21 
  • PHP 5.3.8 
  • PostgreSQL 9.1.1 
  • phpMyAdmin 
  • phpPgAdmin 5.0.3 
  • AWS SDK for PHP 1.4.7 
We want to give a big thanks to everybody who continues to provide feedback and participate in our  our Q&A forum. While we cannot implement every request right away, we continue working to improve all BitNami applications based on your input and needs. Gracias!
