I actually have never compiled or re-compiled PHP, but if you are so
concerned about not crashing PHP, how about you set up a test server first,
play with that for a while, and then once you are happy with the results
apply them to the real server...
If you don't have a spare machine to do this on then just use the computer
you are using at the moment. U can more than easily set up a Dual Boot of
Windows & 1gig Linux partions...
I think this is allways a good general admin tip to carry out
