    Are these packages available in the std. repo from your cent os version or are you talking about manually compiling these versions or taking them from an alternate repo?

    either / or. I searched but did not find anything about anyone upgrading to the latest php and mysql versions. I need to but don't know how. Probably have to compile both.

    Try looking at the dotdeb.org site. I am pretty sure that they have the PHP 5.3 packages available from their repo. I know that they have 5.1 available.

    If you choose to install the MySQL 5.1, you might run into the problem where it will not restart.

    You just need to edit /etc/mysql/my.cnf.

    Comment out this line:

    # * BerkeleyDB
    # Using BerkeleyDB is now discouraged as its support will cease in 5.1.12.

    Will the packages for Debian be compatible with centos 5.4? I am a complete noob at this. I am learning as I go by reading the tutorials and following instructions.

    Sorry I didn't see the CentOS. I did a quick search and I found this repo. You can try it for your system.

    Remi Collet Repository - (See http://rpms.famillecollet.com/) Has been recommended on the mailing list and forum for mysql 5.1 and php5.2.9. Repo configs for EL5 i386 and x86_64 as well as EL4 are available. Suggest extreme caution if using this repo.

    There is a package at
    to install it as a repo.

    Let me know if it works for you.

    I will have to wait until someone else does it, to get step by step instructions. If it was not for falko's prefect server how to i wouldn't have a server at all. plus a little help from a a friend who fixed something i screwed up so i wouldn't have to start over.lol

    I too am a product of the FalkOnator!

    Falko or someone that has the same ability as falko to create step by step howto and can realize that their audience could be someone that just happened to come across his great HowTo's site and start making Linux Server! That is the audience that is looking at this feed.

    So the question I think is: “How to add Repo's to your distro of linux that are not already setup via the great perfect server installations?

    Now, my question is, what effect will adding repos and upgrading php and mysql along with other upgrades have on my ISPConfig installation?
