I'm new to Linux and have only the basic experience with Ubuntu and installing LAMP Server. I've successfully installed all using the "apt-get install" method. My problem is I want to update PHP 5.3.2 to PHP 5.3.10. It is possible to do that? TIA!
For anyone who wants to upgrade Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to PHP 5.3.10, this is how I have done it:
It looks a bit drastic using
Good Luck and thanks to Brian Mercer for his php5 PPA.
jrsalunga, you can try pulling in the 5.3.10 packages from precise (just updated last week), though it may not compile without modification:
This will take a long time, and may fail because of all of the changes between 10.04 and 12.04. However, if it succeeds, the .debs produced should be fully installable on 10.04.
Thanks to Dig for the info on the 3rd party PPA for PHP 5.3.10. I was able to upgrade my 10.04 install using those instructions.
One hiccup during the upgrade was that I did not have
For anyone with the same issue, install it with:
You should then have
Mostly software/applications are get updated automatically with regular updates in Ubuntu (and in other GNULinux distribution) if the latest version is available in repository.
PHP has released 5.3.10 version as stable but I'm afraid it is not available on Ubuntu's repository yet. And I don't think they would make available for 10.04. Because if you check here (under "Packages by distribution->Ubuntu") the PHP's availability for each version of Ubuntu, you can find even latest version of PHP available for Ubuntu 12.04 (which is not released not yet) is 5.3.8. And for 10.04 it is 5.3.2. May be thats why it is not getting updated when you do regular update.
Now, even if you update Ubuntu to the latest stable version, which is 11.10, you are not going to get PHP 5.3.10 but 5.3.6.
May be you should wait until they update their repository. Or if you cannot wait then download it from it's website and compile & install it yourself, if you know how to do it.
