2.2.8? Are you sure you are talking about Tomcat? The current version is 6! And 7 probably isn't long to come.

Yes, I am sure that I want to use apache tomcat 2.2.8.Since my application runs on PHP Version 5.0.4 which was supported by Apache Version 2.0.53 earlier,so now I want to upgrade Apache Version 2.0.53 to Apache Version 2.2.8 and the OS is Solaris. so i want to know ,Is there any hardware incompatibilty or disadvantages is there in version 2.2.8?Also i want to know how much time it requires to upgrade it?

This is definitely not Apache Tomcat. It's almost certainly Apache httpd, a/k/a, simply "Apache". Firstly, because back when Tomcat was in the 2.x releases, PHP was somewhere around releae 3 or earlier, not version 4 or 5. Secondly, because PHP is normally run as an Apache plug-in, not a Tomcat plug-in.

Even Tomcat 3 is so ancient that you'd find the skeletons of dinosaurs and proto-avians among the files. To say nothing of the fact that it's totally unsupported these days.
