Hi, I have read a bunch of stuff about upgrading to PHP 5.5.X on CentOS 5 and I reduced my questions down to two. Can someone answer them. Thanks, John.
Q1: For CentOS 5, on the remi site, are these the correct set of repo install commands? "Enterprise Linux 5 (with EPEL) i386 or x86_64"
Actually I think I got a "yes" here "https://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/Deployment_Guide-en-US/" at the very bottom where it says CentOS 5.
Q2: I am running "mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.95, for redhat-linux-gnu (i386) using readline 5.1
". This pypMyAdmin link http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/downloads.php
says "Please note that phpMyAdmin 4.3.10 requires at least PHP 5.2 and MySQL 5." Should I update this MySql? If yes, I was originally thinking I would use "yum remove mysql" then use "yum install mysql" after the remi repos were in place. However, I was reading this link "http://www.servermom.org/upgrade-php-53-54-55-centos/1534/" and he suggested upgrading MySql using "mysql_upgrade -u root -p"
For any beginners of Yum PHP upgrading like myself here are a few links I found useful. I built up a full list of commands to execute.
