If I go to the download page, should I be downloading the regular php 4.3 or going to the Mac OSX link on the left side of the page and getting it there? The main download does not seem to be for the Mac.

    If you want to configure and compile your own version of PHP, you should download the main one.

    The links on the side are for pre-compiled binary editions of PHP -- you cannot configure them. They're for people who cannot compile programs or don't wish to do so. Since prior to PHP 4.3 it was difficult to compile PHP on MacOS X, this was necessary. The big news is that now you don't need to use a pre-compiled binary.

    The PHP group just hasn't updated the web site -- probably since most MacOS X users aren't used to compiling their own software, even if most Unix people are.
