I'm seeing info on how to upgrade from a specific version to another, and that is what I want to do (currently 3.3.6), but is there a simple command to do this? I'm a complete ubuntu/linux noob so I have no idea what I'm talking about, I just want to upgrade php because my current version maybe limiting the amount of input elements that I can post to the following page.
I am at a loss as to what I should to for this server. I need it to run php5.3 and corresponding version of mysql.
I received a client today through work that is using Fedora core 6 running 10 very small websites on some very hodge podge setup. My original idea was just upgrade to php5.3. I have yum (installed 3.0.8) reconfigured for the fedora archive.
As Laravel 4 requires PHP 5.3.7 minimum with the MCrypt extension to be installed on server, I find it difficult or not able to update PHP version which is currently 5.3.3.
I am using this command to upgrade the php version : apt-get install php5
It starts to download but it stops immediately by saying:
As a side effect of the MIME-type changes in the mime-support package...
I'm able to see in phpinfo.php that I've PHP5.4 installed for use. Now, I'm trying to install symfony2 via composer. When I begin installing composer, it gives me an error stating that php5.3 is required but php5.2 is installed. It tells me to upgrade which I did yet I couldn't see any change.
I'm checking the PHP version through ssh by php -v and it shows PHP5.2 installed.
I am using ubuntu 10.04. I had installed php with the following command if that makes a difference:
sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5
The PHP version on my computer is 5.3.2-1. Will PHP be upgraded any further on this version? If so, where can I find out when the next upgrade will be released and what version it will be? Thanks in advance.
The software updater in my Ubuntu 13.04 64bit system has already notified me of the latest distro release, but when I tell it I want to upgrade, it goes to the upgrade start and prompts me to upgrade or cancel (at the good old notification screen, reminding me of all the things I should read).
I was trying to install some php5 modules on my Virtual Private Server and they weren't found. The server runs Ubuntu 13.04. So I ran sudo apt-get update and noticed that many of the sites were not found. It looks like my version is not supported.
So I looked into how to upgrade to a new version of Ubuntu from the command line since I can only administer the server through ssh.
