Security Hole in PHP 4.3.0


Okay looking around slashdot I found this article. Seems pretty serious so I would like to update PHP. I download the source file and untarred it. This is what I think I should do:

./configure --help

Now I need php to support apache and mysql so I imagine there will be compiler options for this. I will then compile it with the necessary switches for apache and mysql support. Then I'll do make and then make install.

Now this is just a sanity check. Does everything look good so far? I have a couple of pages that rely on PHP and MySQL and I don't want to run into any problems with this upgrade. I've been so spoiled by RedHats up2date manager but its time to get my hands dirty. Also will I need to uninstall the previous PHP rpms?

Thanks in advance.

There are options for Apache and MySQL. You're right. When you don't use --prefix, new php will install to a different directory than the old one. So you can safely test it. To remove your old one use
rpm -e php

BTW: http://www.php.net/release_4_3_1.php
