      technically yes, all core php extensions as some other ones have been ported to hiphop, also it supports all PHP language features with partial support for namespaces (which are currently been worked and improved)

      You may need to change certain things on some scripts but is most case they are minor.

        So the process would be to install Apache2 (or some other web Server) php5 mysql then hiphop. Or does hiphop replace the web server and php.

          hiphop ships with a webserver that is pretty light on resources and seems to be pretty optimized, so no need for apache just a relational database if needed
