I have a Fedora 8 server I set up on Amazon EC2 back in late 2008. I use to to run a few web applications. I use yum to install applications such a PHP and MySQL.
I am currently running PHP version 5.2.6 and would like to upgrade to PHP 5.2.8 or higher. When I run a 'yum update php', I see the following:
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * updates-newkey: kdeforge.unl.edu * fedora: kdeforge.unl.edu * updates: kdeforge.unl.edu updates-newkey | 2.3 kB 00:00 fedora | 2.1 kB 00:00 updates | 2.6 kB 00:00 Setting up Update Process No Packages marked for Update
So basically it is telling me that there are no updates to PHP. I know that I could always update my Fedora to a newer version which has PHP 5.2.8 or higher, but I want to avoid that.
Any suggestions? Is there a way I can update my yum repositories so yum uses a newer repository to make the update? I would like to update PHP through yum. If I have to I am open to compiling by source. In that scenario what should I do? Yum remove PHP and then compile by source? How do I compile php-devel?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
