Updated PHP Install Guide

I'm migrating to a new server, so I took advantage of the process to update my PHP Install Guide. It's now updated for PHP 5.2.3. I modified some things, such as the list of extensions, and another troubleshooting entry, but most of it still applies.
It has attracted enough attention to have a translation. Matej in Slovenia translated it into his native tongue; you can find it in his blog: http://www.butara.si/matej/index.php/?p=33. Thanks Matej!
Thanks, as well, goes out to all those who have written in contributing tips and suggestions.

Updated PHP guide

I have gotten a few e-mails recently about errors when using the test.php page I provide in the testing section.

The errors were of the type:

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session
cookie - headers already sent by...

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent...

One of those who reported the errors also provided a solution, which was to place the PHP session code before any of the html code. Perhaps the newer versions of PHP (I only have 5.1.1 installed) are getting more syntactically tighter. I know the newer versions of PHP are requiring full PHP tags now.

Anyway, there is a new version of the test.php code in my PHP install guide
