How can I do a version upgrade from 5.2 to 5.3? php update/upgrade is saying I'm using the latest version.
I'm using Ubuntu Server 9.04
I used this tutorial http://atik97.wordpress.com/2010/06/12/how-to-upgrade-to-php-5-3-in-ubuntu-9-10/
you should upgrade your ubuntu version. you can get the .deb files for new versions if you want to use apt, and pin them but you are likely to enocuter dependency problems.
please do a dist upgrade. the utility that does all the work for you in ubuntu is called update-manager-core

to upgrade to 5.3.10 (or any other version as they become available in the ubuntu repositories) you can also add this line
the run apt-get update & apt-get install php5
you would probably want to remove the line from the sources.list after that, to make sure that the rest of the software stays the same.
also backup before.
