I really wish dreamhost would start supporting PHP 5.3 and up for nginx.. Especially for vBulletin 5.
I know there's already a thread about it, but.. It 'hopefully' might speed things up for dreamhost. PHP 5.2 is already quite old and I know PHP 5.3+ is compatible with nginx seeing I have another VPS working fully on it perfectly as you can see below:
^ on my own personal VPS with nginx. (not on dreamhost) No problems what so ever.
Dreamhost, please make php 5.3+ compatible and install-able with nginx.. I feel like people are throwing away money now because the lack of this feature.
