Updating php redhat 9 Chat cam2cam arabie

This is my post about the steps which I used to update the versions of PHP and My SQL on RHEL 5.3.

As of this writing the latest versions of PHP is 5.2.9 and that of My SQL server is 5.1.32-1.

Some of the links which were useful to me and from where I used information for the installation process: https://forums.misdivision.com/showthread.php? t=86086 Since this thing worked for me for RHEL 5.3 so I believe it should work for Cent OS as well.

As our development projects expand we're finding we often need newer versions of PHP, Python, Ruby, etc than are provided by Red Hat. There doesn't appear to be a great universal solution.

Like in Cent OS 5.3 you cannot update PHP version above 5.1.x.

I have been using different repositories to update PHP to latest version but most of them break rpm one or two, which may let to unstable Server.

I searched online for making the upgrades and after a long search, I came across links on the web which helped me perform the upgrades.

I have not yet done any configuration of any of those and its likely that I’ll run into some problems there and so may be I’ll make another post about it.

Red Hat Software Collections have been created specifically to address this issue. Yes, it adds some packages in /opt to avoid conflits or overwrites.

To install packages from RHSC, you first enable the collection, then you can do a . If it's the only php package that is installed, I think you can simply reload apache and it will work.

The installation of RHEL5 (after making updates) had versions of PHP/My SQL which were as much as 2.5 years old.

You obviously don’t want so old versions of the software for security reasons.
