Re: why can't I upgrade php?

PHP works for me 'out of the box'. Let's see what could be wrong.

First, how do you know that your web server is working? Are you starting httpd at each reboot -- do you see boot messages saying that httpd has started? If not, fire up


(as root)

and make sure there is an asterisk in the 'httpd' entry.

Second, what is the exact url you are using to access the php script? It should be something like this if you are accessing it from a browser on the server machine:


Or from another machine you reference the the hostname in the browser's address bar:

What do you see when you type:


in the browser's address bar from the server machine?

To answer this and your earlier query:

The reason rpm failed is because you need to install all the other packages that php is split into, too:

rpm -Fvh php* php-ldap* php-mysql*...

(correct the paths to the RPM files as needed.) In other words, you freshen all of the php files, all at the same time. php-imap has a dependency on php in the same version.

In your document root in /var/www/html, is there a file named info.php that has the <? phpinfo() ?> script in it? You should be able to see the phpinfo with a standard install of both httpd and php (provided, of course, that you have not incorrectly updated the config files httpd.conf and php.ini.)

It's very strange that you can't get this working from a fresh install, so you must have made extensive changes to httpd.conf and php.ini.

I am trying to upgrade to the latest stable php, and I get the following message with rpm -Uvh php-4.3.4-1.1.i386.rpm (even if I try the --force tag).

I get a similar error if I try to erase (rpm -e) the old php file.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, I downloded all the updates and updated to 4.3.4 with no change in the blank screen problem. Googling around, many users seem to have the blank screen with php problem, but I have yet to see a post with a solution.

I made only a few minor changes to the httpd.conf and php.ini files. I had backed up the original files, and I just restored them and rebooted my system.

Still the same blank screen problem.  Something is broken somewhere.  :-{
