I managed to upgrade php from 5.2.10 to 5.3.8 in CentOS 5.4. Some of the extensions were lost in the process (mbstring, mysql).
One quick run for:
yum list installed | grep php
When I try to install new extensions:
yum install php-mbstring
I get this error message:
Transaction Summary ================================================================================ Install 3 Package(s) Upgrade 0 Package(s)

Transaction Check Error: package php-common-5.3.8-5.el5.remi.1.x86_64 (which is newer than php-common-5.2.10-1.el5.centos.i386) is already installed file /etc/php.ini from install of php-common-5.2.10-1.el5.centos.i386 conflicts with file from package php-common-5.3.8-5.el5.remi.1.x86_64
Practically the same happens with yum install php-mysql
How do I get rid of those old versions?
