How to Upgrade PHP on RH Linux 9 ?


Hello everyone,

I am running RH Linux 9 with PHP 4.2.2, but I want to upgrade PHP to 5.1.1 or 4.4.1 for my need. Can anyone guide me to do this. I have tried to upgrade PHP to 5.1.1 (from source) with no success.

Please help.

post the error u got while installing from source
its also not a good idea to try to overwrite php4 with php5
install it in another folder...then configure apache(web server) to use php5 instead

After installing flex, I got a new error:

I have installed libxml2-2.5.4-1.i386, but it didn't solve the problem.

You'll need the development package, libxml2-devel, which contains the programming headers and other things needed to build software using the libraries. IIRC you'll have to upgrade Apache too, since recent versions of PHP require a newer Apache than the one shipped with RH9 to work.

Why do I need to install so many packages?
The ./configure command I used was generated by "php -i | grep configure."
Doesn't it mean that all packages in ./configure command were already installed and used to make previous PHP?

The development package is only needed to build the software, not to run it. It was installed on whatever system Red Hat built the package on, but is not on your system apparently.

Does it mean that if I have another RedHat system with all packages, I can use it to install PHP on this Linux 9?

the packages have to be installed...having it on another comp wont matter
./configure checks if u have all the packages that the program needs
if u can...try to install rh9 again, this time ticking all the programming tools and devel tools also during install
or even better...use a newer version instaead of rh9

I couldn't reinstall Linux because there are some websites running on this machine. I don't want to break it.
Anyway, I think I just need the packages already installed on the machine, and I should remove unnecessaries declared in ./configure command.
I am wondering if it is a good idea.

At this time, ./configure command asks me to install BZip2, but I don't think I would need it because the machine is running only for web server.
Should I remove it from ./configure command?

Why not just get Fedora Core 4 instead of using RH9?

I have successfully upgraded to PHP 4.4.1, but after rebooting the system, I still see PHP 4.2.2 in phpinfo().
This is a virtual dedicated server I rented from a web host. Maybe it is not allowed to upgrade PHP.
