I have been trying to get LAMP install upgraded to PHP5.5, Apache 2.4, on Amazon Linux. Per this earlier question, Update PHP with yum on Amazon Linux, I thought I had it beat, but clearly that's not the case.
At the moment I am trying to install the PDO package and I'm getting the following errors:
--> Finished Dependency Resolution Error: php55-common conflicts with php-common-5.3.28-1.2.amzn1.x86_64 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
I tried the two fixes suggested in the error messages, but that didn't help. Also, tried to erase php-common-5.3.... but could not. Could erase php-common, but that would erase the 5.5 version with it. Any ideas?
Once I am over this hurdle, it's possible I'll strike other hurdles too, so the bigger question is... Has anyone done this before? And perhaps logged the steps in a blog article?
I am using AMI 2013.09.
