CentOS 5, installed ffmpeg and compiled the Everything works fine. Then upgrade the php to 5.2.13 (using an external repository)

recompiled but now when trying to load php:

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: ffmpeg: Unable to initialize module
Module compiled with module API=20050922, debug=0, thread-safety=0
PHP    compiled with module API=20060613, debug=0, thread-safety=0
These options need to match
 in Unknown on line 0

Any ideas how to resolve this issue ? Thanks.

I suggest you to rollback, as there is no real php-5.2.13 rpm provided by rhel/centos – alexus Aug 4 '10 at 20:19

Got a solution, phpize -clean, rm the so file.

then reinstalling.
