I installed a new version of PHP, but security scans still show its out of date


I seem to have successfully installed php 5.2.6 on my server. I installed from an RPM. when I do php -i, It shows php 5.2.6 but when I scan the server, it says the php is still out of date and older that php 5.1.5. I deleted all the old files from the old php installation, I can't figure out what hasn't been updated. Please help?

Thanks,
Jackie

Did you restart the service after the update??? If not, the old one is still running. Try "/etc/init.d/apache2 restart" as root, then see if it comes up with the new version.

Unhappy didn't work

ok, when I do php -v it gives 5.2.6, btu then I do a nessus scan and it says I have a vulnerability because my php version is lower than 5.2.6! I installed that version on purpose so that it would not see that as a vulnerability. It also goes on to say that the version is lower than 5.2.5 then 5.2.4 etc.

i did updatedb, then I did a scan. no good.
