  1. sudo yum remove php php-common php-cli
  2. sudo yum install php53
  3. sudo yum install zabbix-web-mysql

but when i tried last thing, it shows the following error:

Are you sure you're installing PHP 5.3, not just PHP?

Try following this guide and specify php version during installation like:

yum install php53 php53-cli php53-common php53-gd php53-imap php53-intl php53-mbstring php53-mysql php53-odbc php53-pdo php53-pspell php53-snmp php53-xml php53-xmlrpc

Also, before downgrading, you should remove php54, you sad you had been using:

rpm -qa | grep -i php
yum remove php
yum remove php-cli
yum remove php-pdo
yum remove php-common
yum remove <other php packages>

Now the zabbix-web-mysql you're trying to install has dependency on php5.4. It is not supported with PHP 5.3, however you can try to install it from RPM-package without dependencies:

wget http://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/2.4/rhel/5/x86_64/zabbix-web-mysql-2.4.7-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
wget http://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/2.4/rhel/5/x86_64/zabbix-web-2.4.7-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
rpm -ivh --nodeps zabbix-web-2.4.7-1.el5.x86_64.rpm zabbix-web-mysql-2.4.7-1.el5.x86_64.rpm`

But me why would you use CentOS 5.3 which should have been upgraded to 5.11 like 5 years ago?

You should consider installing zabbix on CentOS 7 instead

  • thank you for your help. cause i am using that server for test, i made it like what you said at first. Thank you so much haha – PYO Jan 14 '16 at 10:21
  • well, you should consider upgrading, otherwise you might run into dependency-hell when trying to install anything (probably you're going there right now with zabbix) – Anubioz Jan 14 '16 at 10:24
  • @PYO So has you solved the problem? It's unclear from your message... – Anubioz Jan 14 '16 at 10:51
