I see (using GNOME Package Manager) that there are two PHP 5.3 packages available for CentOS 5.6. One of them is "php53-5.3.3-1.el5_6.1", and the other is ""php53-5.3.3-1.el5". What's the difference between them? Some googling suggest that the former is the right one, but can anybody confirm? Thanks in advance.
Odd – what repository does the latter show as being in? I just checked various CentOS 5.6 servers of ours and we only have the "php53-5.3.3-1.el5_6.1" package.
If you are interested, we have used the Webtatic repository for more up to date PHP 5.3 packages (5.3.6). Details available here: http://www.webtatic.com/projects/yum-repository/
