I have a VPS server. The OS is CentOS 5.3 (final)
It is running very well. Because I like to keep software updated. So I use yum command to update it.
It told me nothing to update. OK.
PHP 5.2.6 and MySQL 5.0.77 installed on CentOS 5.3
To keep it update, I have to add repository.
Let me describe the steps.
1) SSH to the server
2) Run following command
#rpm --import http://www.jasonlitka.com/media/RPM-GPG-KEY-jlitka #vi /etc/yum.repos.d/utterramblings.repo
3) Add following content into the utterramblings.repo
[utterramblings] name=Jason's Utter Ramblings Repo baseurl=http://www.jasonlitka.com/media/EL$releasever/$basearch/ enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=http://www.jasonlitka.com/media/RPM-GPG-KEY-jlitka
4) Save and run following command to do the update.
#yum update php #yum update mysql
The results are php to 5.2.11 and mysql to 5.0.84.
I took above method from
bingu. Thanks my friend.
