Is this a trick question? PHP's current major release version is 5.

What's a trick question? "php" is probably the trunk version from whatever source you're dealing with (eg, a Linux distro) while "php5" would be their trunk version of the PHP 5.x series.

PHP is officially on 5.4 but it's about as big a change from 5.3 as 5.3 was from 5.2; most people have probably upgraded 5.2->5.3 by now but it'll be a bit longer until they're up to 5.4.

While most people should have upgraded to 5.3, many if not most hosts are still using 5.2.x
