Centos Howto Upgrade to PHP 5.3 from 5.2

It's not as simple as "yum install" as you can see below and it doesn't stop there.

 yum install php53

Run what is below to avoid dependency hell that I decided not to paste.

yum -y install package-cleanup
package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
package-cleanup --orphans
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
#this fixed it
yum clean all

This will require downtime but I couldn't fiind another way that worked:

 echo y|yum remove php-*;echo y|yum install php53*

yum -x php53-odbc64 install php53*

To solve the above you have to remove some weird stuff that Zend adds to your default vhost.

 

#ZEND-{DC789661BC47C707017CAF9F2BB500D1}
#Include "/usr/local/zend/etc/sites.d/zend-default-vhost-80.conf"

#ZEND-{15168DADCE0E562BD3FC24EB9302589D}

Your php.ini will probably be wiped out and overwritten so make sure you enable short tags or PHP code with <? will not be working and will display as HTML:


/etc/php.ini
short_open_tag = On
