CentOS 5.3 with PHP 5

How can It be done? Should I install virtualmin first then update, or what?


I’m not sure what you’re asking – PHP5 comes with CentOS 5.3.

Whenever you run Virtualmin’s install.sh script, you’ll end up with PHP5 on your system when the installation is complete.


I get php 5.1 installed, I need php 5.2 or php 5.3. How can this be done?

You may want to take a look at the VM Bleeding Edge repository, which will have PHP 5.2 in it:



wget http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-3.noarch.rpm

wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-5.rpm

rpm -Uvh remi-release-5*.rpm epel-release-5*.rpm

yum --enablerepo=remi update php*

yum --enablerepo=remi update mysql*

yum --enablerepo=remi update php*

yum --enablerepo=remi update

yum update
