I'm trying to install Laravel, this required me to upgrade to php 5.6.5. This was a success and php is running fine, but im having 2 dependency issues when i try to install other packages that laravel requires such as php mbstring
yum install php-mbstring ... Packages skipped because of dependency problems: php-common-5.3.3-40.el6_6.x86_64 from updates php-mbstring-5.3.3-40.el6_6.x86_64 from updates
I thought that this meant php-common was out of date since it was 5.3.3 so i tried updating to the latest version and got this message.
yum install php56w-common Package php56w-common-5.6.5-1.w6.x86_64 already installed and latest version Nothing to do
Im still getting the same error. i tried removing the old 5.3.3 version of php-common, but it isnt installed.
My server is running centos 6.6
Update Using the repo from the guide i was using https://iamtrishulpani.wordpress.com/2014/10/21/installing-and-using-laravel-4-2-on-centos-6-5/
I was able to get past this error, but now its telling me that it cant find XZ compression
