OS is redhat ES 3.0
Mysql is 5.0.28 --> not the one that came with redhat, I installed it for another application...not shared
PHP installed is 4.3.2
Trying to install mediawiki 1.6.5
mediawiki uses php, mysql and apache.
On installation, its automated configuration gui gives me an error regarding PHP:
"PHP is linked with old MySQL client libraries.If you are using a MySQL 4.1 server and have problems connecting to the database, see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/old-client.html
I am not using 4.1 (I am using 5.0) and am not sure this is anywhere near my problem.
Can I just upgrade PHP somehow? I see tons of dependencies all around. My other applications use perl, so not too worried about them, but I do not want to reinstall apache or mysql if I can avoid it.
I tried to install php-5.1.4 in /usr/local, but configure failed due to libxml2 being at too low a version. Of course that has a million dependencies.
Any quick guide to what/how to upgrade necessary pieces?
