upgradation of Apache, PHP and Mysql


The following server/software was installed by default during OS installation

Apache 2.0.40
Php 4.4.0
Mysql 4.0.26

Now I would like to upgard all the above server/software with the following version which are available as source code from the relevant sites.

Apache 2.0.54
Php 5.0.5
Mysql 4.1.12

I have install the above software in the normal way as given instructions in the INSTALL file i.e., ./configure, make, make install and so on. Now If I check the versions of the above server/software, it gives me the old version. Hence, please let me know how to upgarde the Apache, php and Mysql from source while the older versions are installed by default at the time of OS installation.

thanks in advance.

The packages that came with the distro probably have been installed in a different place to the default, for example by default apache is installed to /usr/local/apache, rather than put the config files in /etc or the bin files /usr/local/bin, so stop your distro version of apache, then try and fire the new one up by doing
/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start
If you want to compile apache from source rather than using your disto's package manager to update then uninstall the distro versions to keep the system a bit neater
