I would stay with the apache 1.3 branch because of some compatibility
issues with the 2.0 branch. I would certainly move to at least the v4
branch of MySQL. I haven't tried any of my webapps with v5 yet because
of some strange SQL errors I was getting while installing one of them
with MySQL v5. It doesn't matter what order you install them in.
