I maintain RPM-packages for PHP 5.4 and 5.5, see earlier post about it.
As any sysadmin can expect, there was too much trouble running the updates. Since CentOS 6 native way is running yum repositories, I created one.
Kick things going by installing the repo-definition:
yum install \
After that, a simple yum install command:
yum install plesk-php55
... will yield something like this:
PHP 5.5.9 (cli) (built: Feb 9 2014 22:04:05)
Copyright (c) 1997-2014 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.5.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2014 Zend Technologies
I'll be compiling new versions to keep my own box in shape.
thanks for the explanation. i did it and now i got a problem that the database support is not activated. I tried to install mysql again, but it says it is already installed, i think at the 5.3.3 installation. But how can i install mysql in my 5.4 and 5.5 php installation?
Thanks in advance!
It should be given, that various features of PHP are in different packages and to get those features, you need to install them.
I am quite new to CentOS and Linux, but i have got a VPS now and i am learning as i go.
Thank you for the really fast answer!
i maybe got another noob question, in have installed 5.4 and 5.5 like you said and also the MySQL, but i found out that the only thing i don't have is the GD library, do you maybe have got a magic command line to install that on the both 5.4 and 5.5 installation?
I have got a joomla website and K2 is not working, i think it has something to do with mb_string.
Can you point me in the good direction here?
yum install plesk-php54-mbstring
K2 is now working, that was pretty simple.
Have you got a list with all those commands? so that i would not have to ask you every time...(-;
It is possible to get a list of packages. Already installed or available ones. Try studying "yum list" command. To make your listing easier, try limiting the listing somehow.
I will study the yum list command!!
