I have an interesting, albeit infuriating problem with CentOS.
I'm trying to configure this server to run a Symfony2 website I've built. The website doesn't work, and I've pinned down the problem to some of the PHP packages on the server being 5.1, and some of the newer packages are PHP 5.3. (Symfony2 requires PHP 5.3 to run).
I use the following command:
yum install php53u.x86_64
And I get this error:
Error: php53-common conflicts with php-common
Although it does say it's installed.
Anyway, I go to use
yum info php and it tells me that the PHP version installed on the server is still 5.1.6. I go to use
yum remove php, thinking if I remove all traces of the old PHP install I can install 5.3 afresh, I get the following error:
No match for argument PHP.
What am I doing wrong?
