I've recently registered a VPS and am trying to update the version of PHP installed on it. I'm used to Ubuntu rather than Redhat so I need a bit of advice on how to solve this problem.
Yum seems to be having a bit of a nightmare, I've tried installing it but at various points get to error messages or dead links and haven't found anything near a recent tutorial online.
When I run
rpm -q yum I get
yum-3.2.22-26.el5.centos so I think to an extent my installation was succesful however when I run
yum then I get the following response:
`Please install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly. It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is: 2.7.1 (r271:86832, Mar 6 2011, 09:56:34) [GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-48)] If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to the yum faq at: http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq`
Nothing in the FAQ seems to be working. Any ideas as to whats going on?
