If I've upgraded PHP on my Mac, should I now avoid all OS X Updates?

If I've upgraded PHP on my Mac, should I now avoid all OS X Updates? I'm hosting a website on a Mac mini in a datacenter, and some of my software required a newer version of PHP than what's included out-of-the-box in OS X Mountain Lion. I keep getting the notification saying system updates are ready, and restart to install. But I'm scared it's going to overwrite my PHP upgrades and break everything. And it took me an insanely long time to get the PHP upgrade to work properly and play nicely with OS X Server.

PHP classes for a complete beginner

My job has offered to pay for some distance learning PHP training to help me move past my beginner-level skills. For this to work best for me, there needs to be a component of homework and accountability (I've done plenty of computer-based training, and it never sticks unless I'm actively practicing the material.)

Buying a good theme

I'm currently shopping for pay themes for a Wordpress blog. A lot of theme websites have previews for their themes, but are rather limited in their implementation.

PHP Form woes

LearningProgramming(PHP)Filter: I have a form with a select field (with about 70 options) and a couple of radio buttons. The final result differs according to what has been selected.

php/mysql escaping backslashes

Php question: mysql_real_escape_string is turning '\6' (and I assume any other \(number combination) into a single character '' where it's in my code, but not when the same string is passed through $_POST. Is this a behaviour of magic_quotes (currently on) or something else - and without the ability to change global php settings, what can I do about it? [more inside]
