With filezilla I ftp the php-packages to /var/www/clients/client1/web1/tmp ( because I think this is easier than many times wget ).
After that I logged on to my Linux box and cd /var/www/clients/client1/web1/tmp and executed yum install php it returned some errors about missing dependencies so I wget php-devel, php-common, php-cli after that I executed yum install php php-devel php-gd php-imap php-ldap php-mysql php-odbc php-pear php-xml php-xmlrpc php-eaccelerator php-mbstring php-mcrypt php-mhash php-mssql php-snmp php-soap php-tidy and it finished with no errors.
Reboot and and point my browser to www.myserver.nl/phpinfo.php
and I was unpleasant surprised that it still said php 5.2.6 so i executed yum install once again and it returned php 5.2.9 already installled.
It seemed so easy but it is ( to ) dificult for me.
What am I doing wrong ?
