One of my servers is running CentOS. As I wanted to upgrade PHP, I was looking how to do that. I’ve found the YUM command to be useful (yum upgrade php). However, for being able to upgrade this way, one needs yum to be installed.
I was ‘fortunate’ it wasn’t so another task was born: installing YUM on CentOS.For installing, I’ve found this source to be quite useful. However, I got some warnings because of dependencies. To resolve these dependencies I’ve upgraded the rpm packages which were denoted by the installer by hand, but the command suggested at the last post in this thread might also work directly.
The names of the most recent rpm packages are listed here. As the rpm packages have circular dependencies one of the packages has to be installed with the –nodeps argument so these dependencies are not taken into account.
