New to this, so please bear with me.
Reviewed the php stats of the server, with
yum list installed :
php.x86_64 5.4.16-42.el7 @base php-cli.x86_64 5.4.16-42.el7 @base php-common.x86_64 5.4.16-42.el7 @base php-devel.x86_64 5.4.16-42.el7 @base php-mysql.x86_64 5.4.16-42.el7 @base php-pdo.x86_64 5.4.16-42.el7 @base php-pear.noarch 1:1.9.4-21.el7 @base php-process.x86_64 5.4.16-42.el7 @base php-xml.x86_64 5.4.16-42.el7 @base
I was trying to figure out the repo that was used to install this, but unable to get that info. So was going to upgrade from 5.4 to 5.5 in a stage by stage process following steps as provided WebTactic
I ran the php version command to get this info:
$ php -v PHP 5.4.16 (cli) (built: Nov 6 2016 00:29:02) Copyright (c) 1997-2013 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.4.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2013 Zend Technologies
Just want to make sure I do this right and not muck things up. Yes I already took a snap shot of the server incase the install goes bad.
Digging thru some Server Documentation found this with regards to Apache / PHP installation on the web server:
$ rpm -Uvh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm $ rpm -Uvh https://mirror.webtatic.com/yum/el7/webtatic-release.rpm $ yum install httpd php56w php56w-opcache php56w-mysql php56w-gd
However when i run phpinfo() on the server via a web browser it displays:
PHP Version 5.4.16
OH if repo is from WebTactic than I guess the answer is YES!!!
