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.
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 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.
