PHP Binary ERROR installing ISPConfig - CentOS4.6

    Quick background / goals: I am installing CentOS4 to a VM, because I have a live server running CentOS4 and wish to update to php5. Seems like an easy update, but everywhere I read says you need to test your scripts first. So I thought I'd install CentOS4 on a VM and try to copy my files over, make sure they work, and then do a test update and make sure everything still works. I would like to do this all on localhost (or at least from the same home network somehow) since I wouldn't know where to begin with actually putting this new CentOS4 server live on the web.

    ---

    I followed the steps in the perfect server setup CentOS4.6 almost exactly as mentioned. The only thing I changed was I have it set to dhcp instead of static IP as I couldn't figure out how to get the internet connection working with static. Since this is just for my own testing, I figured dhcp would be ok. Other than that, everything worked exactly as planned except setting passwords for mysql, as the second command required the server name and I didn't set one in the CentOS4 install.

    So the guide worked great, I think. However, we get to the ISPConfig issue.

    Near the end it ran into some errors regarding the version of PHP. There was another post about the same issue nearby, although closed and redirected to a continued topic. I've logged the install of ISPConfig since it will list any errors. Everything looks fine until the end. Details below.

    Any tips on getting this installed would be great. Or if what I am doing will be useless in meeting my goals for figuring out if updating php4 to php5 on a live server will cause any problems, please let me know. The live server is with a hosted service on a virtual dedicated account, running CentOS4 and Plesk 8.2.1 as the control panel. I don't really know much about setting up servers and how they actually work - I just use the one I'm paying monthly for.


    I've got the full log available from the very beginning (tar ispconfig...) if I need to post it. Couldn't upload it as it's 900kb in size, but I can upload it somewhere else if necessary. For now, the errors are posted below. Everything else seems fine.

    EDIT: As I've seen elsewhere, I did run yum update zlib. It says there are no changes to be made. I'm pretty sure everything is updated and working properly, as everything followed the guide perfectly without any errors along the way (except for having trouble setting that mysql password)

    The problem is the dot you entered when you were asked for the certificate details. Please just hit enter to accept all the default values, and the installation should go ok.

    Hmm..I will try it out. I thought I saw it say put a dot if you want to leave the field blank, but that may have been another portion of the script.

    That did the trick! It installed correctly, although I wasn't sure about some of the details it started asking later on, such as mysql server and things like that.

    If I want to just create this CentOS4 virtual machine so that I can test stuff out on it before my live server, what would you suggest doing for the configuration? I originally thought about doing localhost and things like that, but it got confusing and am not sure if I did it right.

    Ideally I would like to type in some IP address (it doesn't have to be external, just applicable to my virtual machines) and open the control panel. I guess I would like to have a virtual network from windows to centos4 (both VMs) and access the CentOS4 control panel ispconfig through the Windows OS, as that is how I do everything with Plesk. I could log in to CentOS4 instead of doing ssh.

    Anyways, I would like to set up the virtual network so that those two VMs behave as my computer and my live server do. I don't care if anyone else has access to it with a static IP, but I need to be able to access it from an OS with a GUI and browser (such as windows). I'm just not sure how to configure it all with VMs or how to do the IP addresses for them. I originally tried a static IP (same as in the perfect setup example) when installing CentOS but couldn't connect to the internet to download updates via yum. I'd like to use DHCP so I have access to the internet, but still need access to that VM from another somehow...I don't know...I'm learning at least!

    Thanks for the ispconfig help. It installed, but I may need to redo it once I figure out how I should actually configure everything such as the mysql server, domain, etc.
