I'm trying to upgrade pcre on my CentOS 5.5 VPS.
Unfortunately the only RPMs available are for 6.6 in yum. I've found some links to newer versions of PCRE and even tried (and succeeded) at compiling pcre, but I can't get php to recognize the newer version that I've installed.
Do I need to recompile php? It seems that if I have to recompile PHP I have to recompile Apache. Is there any way I can avoid this?
