I need to upgrade PHP so that I can upgrade joomla on my dedicated server. I have:
- kloxo 6.1.6
- Linux CentOS-55-64-minimal 2.6.18-194.32.1.el5 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I searched everywhere and I could only find that PHP 5.3 isn't compatible with zend. I would like to upgrade to 5.2.4, which is the minimum for joomla 1.6 and 1.7.
I tried to run:
yum update php.x86_64
Which is the PHP package installed, but it didn't work.
This is a production server with quite a few users across many sites, so I wanted to do it as safely as possible.
Is it safe to run "yum update"? It showed me 6 packages to install and 125 packages to update, including a kernel. Is that safe? I haven't touched kloxo's yum repositories.
I just successfully ran "yum update".
Now I think I need to know how to add a new repository that has the 5.2.4 and how to update to that specific version.
