    Hi guys,
    I've tried to upgrade PHP 5.3.3 to PHP 5.3.10, but without success.
    Can anyone provide me any working tutorial? I guess I'm not the first one to to do this :)

    Hi Ph1L,

    is there a specific reason for running PHP 5.3? /supported-versions.php
    As you can see, PHP 5.3 is out of support since 2014.

    Which Linux distribution are you using?

    Best Regards,

    Thanks for your reply.
    The server is some years old. Wanted to update PHP, in order to get Joomla 3.x installed, currently only 3.2.7 supported on PHP 5.3.3. Therefor PHP 5.3.10 is needed, or something higer, in the PHP 5.3.x releases.
    It's running CentOS release 6.8 (Final).

    thank you for the information.

    Are you running php as mod_php or with fastcgi / fpm etc.?

    If you don't have an application that requires an old php version, I'd recommend you to install php 5.6 from the remi repository.
    Just have a look at the "Install Wizard" /wizard/ and choose (CentOS 6 => 5.6.24 => Single Version)

    Don't forget to run a backup before installing the php version or if your machine is a vm just do a snapshot. :)

    It's running ISPConfig 3. Not sure about mod_php or fastcgi etc. Can you advice me how to check?

    How did you install ISPConfig 3? Did you use an tutorial from howtoforge?
    The CentOS default is mod_php.

    I have not installed this VM, therefor I can't answer you. I've setup several others, using tutorials from here yes.
    Let's assume it's mod_php, then what? :)

    Then you can just do the update :)

    But you can do the snapshot, right?

    Will try this later. Thanks for your help so far. Will update here with status later on.
