problem updating php on FC6


i have php-5.1.6 installed on fedora core 6
and i want to upgrade it to php-5.2.5

i do yum update and got this:

[root@XYZ ~]# yum -y update php
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
core 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Could not find update match for php
No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion


is there any other way to update to php-5.2.5

Thanks,
Nitesh.

FC6 is EOFL (End Of Life). You will have to upgrade PHP manually using RPMS. you can download RPMs at http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3

No, but you do need to install all the dependencies. Download them all manually, and install/upgrade them one by one. You will also have to do that for all THEIR dependencies too.

FC6 is very, VERY old. You are upgrading a system that has numerous, well known security vulnerabilities, no patches available for it, and no upgrades available for it. Best thing for you to do, is to do a fresh install of the latest Fedora, which is 13.

most likely you will have to remove all current php installations, as they will cause dependency errors.

Better suggestions is however to install the latest Fedora, as FC6 is, as blue_print already mentioned, at End Of Life.

is this on a server ? and is it Godaddy ??

fedora 6 is dead .
i would use RHEL 5.5 and buy it or install CentOS 5.5

if Godady use the power of your cash and MOVE to a different host.

Thanks to you all for your help and reply...

i uninstall the current php version and then manually installed latest version php-5.3.2-2 and all its dependencies one by one

and it worked for me...

now i have another problem, i do this all to upload a drupal-6 site on my server which is developed on another server.
i copied the code and database and move it to my server. every thing was looking fine. i am able to access the main page but not any other links or content on the main page. the error coming is 'This link appears to be broken'

is this due to the unstable version of php or something else. the site is working fine at my windows desktop with XAMPP.
