Core 6 php5 upgrade


I'm trying to get php5 installed on my old core 6 machine and yum gives me the following:

Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories

Server: Apache
Content-Length: 249

Trying other mirror.

Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: extras

I cannot upgrade the machine to a newer version of Fedora.
Can anyone help me out

the reason that yum is not working on the old and UNSUPPORTED fedora 6 is that the software repos were moved into the historical archives a LONG time ago


there are no longer in the fedora mirrors .

your ONLY option is to build php 5 from source AND ALL OF IT'S dependencies

or install the current fedora -- Fedora 11 -- fedora 12 will be out in about 30 days

John;
Yup I know it went out of support but didn't know that the mirrors had been archived.

Is there such a thing as a FC6 to FC11 upgrade so I don't have to recreate all of the users and databases that have merrily been running on it. Seems like just yesterday that I installed the machine.

If I do have to do a fresh install can i just copy over the /home directory and whatever file keeps track of the users? I know I can get away with just copying over the mysql files as i just did that with another machine.

I'm an instructor at Binghamton University and am my own SysAdmin.

there is NO "upgrade" from fedora 6 to 11 ( upgrading from 10 to 11 works some of the time )
you will need to do a FRESH install of fedora 11.

no, there have been SO MANY changes that 95% of the fedora 6 config files will not work in fedora 11

for that old version of MySql ???

you might be able to copy over the new mysql db files but i don't think it will work 100% corectly.

If you like the RH style, but want a distro that has long term support/updates, go with CENTOS, which is a free version of RHEL.
For MySQL, I'd recommend a mysqldump and import; I sincerely doubt you could use the raw db files from that far back.
