PHP5 is the next generation of PHP.

http://www.php.net

go check it out, they talk about the differences there..


I'd keep learning PHP4, it'll be a while before webhosts upgrade/adopt PHP5, and you won't lose anything by learning PHP4..

There are some funky bugs, I know that is why I have upgraded most of my stuff to 5, also new abilities/support. If u do php4 you should be fine of php5
