Which version of centos ?
There are many suggestions here, but only for Centos 4 or 5.

Do you know the implication of upgrading to PHP5? Some of your pages may not work anymore or not work as expected. My best advice would be to upgrade to CentOS 5.5 (by making a backup first, of course). The 4 series is getting old and is in the last support phase. To get newer software, you should use a newer distribution. CentOS 5 come with PHP 5.1, but packages for 5.2 are available in third party repositories.

hi Elv13,
tks for the heads up

the server im currently running to not have any application running so im quite safe =)

your idea of upgrading centos is an alternative which i most prob will take. however, if i wanna upgrade php 4 to php 5 without doing an upgrade of centos, wat are the ways?

regards

so you missed 2d grade ? and did not learn to read.
that is for cent 5 ( and TESTING at that) a very big no-no.


you can not install cent 5 rpm's on cent 4 computer

that will KILL the cent 4 install

I would back up all important data
DATA only none of the OS
then install the current CentOS 5.5

nuttynibbles, i was having a bad day

you might want to read the CentOS wiki
http://wiki.centos.org/

on cent 4.8 it is ( for the most part) imposable .
upgrade the cent install to the CURRENT CentOS 5.5
