Installing PosgreSQL RPM


Hello,

I have a bit of a problem with updating my Plesk to a newer version. Basically from what I gathered is that the new Plesk requires PosgreSQL in order to run, and displayed the following during the installation:
Quote:
Preparing for packages installation...

Installing packages
Installing postgresql-libs-7.2.4-5.73.i386.rpm
Installing postgresql-7.2.4-5.73.i386.rpm
Installing php-pgsql-4.3.10-0.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
php = 4.3.10-0 is needed by php-pgsql-4.3.10-0
Not all required packages were installed.
Press <ENTER> to continue...
Someone explained to me that because I am using php-4.3.11-mecca1, php-pgsql-4.3.10-0 is an older version and thus the dependency errors. And I should just install the php-pgsql RPM from my own php version and its name is probably just php-pgsql-4.3.11-mecca1.rpm.

Can someone please provide a detailed step by step description of how I can do this? For example, where is this php-pgsql-4.3.11-mecca1.rpm, and what command should I use to install this? I don't know anything about RPM other than it is a great Redhat Package Manager.

Thanks

Plesk--new or old--does not require PostgreSQL run. Its internal DB is MySQL. It looks like somewhere along the line you have picked up the PostgreSQL module for PHP, and this is what is causing the dependency problem.

If you are sure that you are not using PostgreSSQL, you could just remove that RMP and then the upgrade process will not attempt to install or upgrade it.

I can almost guarantee you, though, that if you don't know all that much about RPM, you should probably get some professional assistance with upgrading Plesk (assuming this is a production server).

Hello,

Um... I downloaded "php-pgsql-4.3.11-2.8.i386.rpm" from the http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/fedora/...-2.8.i386.html but the following happened:
[root@ns1 /]# rpm -i php-pgsql-4.3.11-2.8.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3) is needed by php-pgsql-4.3.11-2.8
libpq.so.3 is needed by php-pgsql-4.3.11-2.8
php = 4.3.11-2.8 is needed by php-pgsql-4.3.11-2.8

The place where I downloaded this php-pgsql-4.3.11-2.8.i386.rpm did mention about libc.so.6, libpq.so.3, and php 4.3.11-2.8. But when I click on the libc.so.6, it returned a list of links but none of them are libc.so.6.

I'm a bit lost here. First off, there appears to be different kinds of php-pgsql-4.3.11 here. This one I got is release 2.8 but there are also release 2.7, 2.6, etc. How do I know which release to get? And will it work for any Redhat distribution? (ie Redhat 7.3, Fedora 3, 4, etc)?

Looks like you've got some custom-rolled RPMs there. What does
Code:
rpm -qa | grep php-
say?

What version of Plesk do you have now, and what version are you trying to upgrade to?

"grep php-" returns nothing.....
"rpm -qa" returns a very long list of stuff. So long that the beginning of the list can not be seen even if I scroll through the window. But the last few lines are:
perl-IO-Zlib-1.01-rh7.3.build75050128.10
perl-Text-Balanced-1.95-rh7.3.build75050128.10
psa-bu-7.5.2-rh7.3.build75050128.10
postgresql-libs-7.2.4-5.73

I have Plesk 7.5.2 and I'm trying to upgrade it to 7.5.4.

Run the commands on a single line, with the pipe character between them:
Code:
rpm -qa | grep php-
That will take that long output you get from "rpm -qa" and send it to grep, which will print only lines containing "php-".

The idea is want to see all the PHP modules you have installed with RPM. This "php-4.3.11-mecca1" concerns me a little bit, as I have never used anything on a Plesk box other than the stock PHP RPMs for the distro involved, or the ones available (and specifically for Plesk environments) at atomicrocketturtle.com.
