Yum PHP Dependency Issue

Hi,

I run Centos5 but with PHP compiled (by the host) from Fedora because of a need for PHP 5.2.6. All works fine in principle.

I now have a need to add php-mbstring.

When I run yum install php-mbstring I get:

Error: Missing Dependency: php-common = 5.1.6-20.el5_2.1 is needed by package php-mbstring

But when I run yum list php-common I get:

php-common.x86_64                        5.2.6-1.el5.remi       installed

Update php-common results in nothing to do.

So it seems as if php-mbstring needs a lower version of php-common than the one I already have. That's unfortunately where my package management skills end.

BTW I get the same when trying to install php-gd

How can get php-mbstring on here?

I found an RPM here of a more up to date PHP-MbString package but have no clue how to use it or whether it would even solve my issue:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/9390853/com/php-mbstring-5.2.6-2.i386.rpm.html

Is that what I need? How do I use it?

if the above doesnt work and u need to know how to install that rpm...then

log on as admin

*log in as regular user then type su -
then enter admin password.

then make sure you have the link to the actual rpm package DIRECTLY on your clipboard

in the shell type

wget then (right click, in putty this is paste)

<press enter key>

'this will download the file.....then

rpm -i php-mbstring-5.2.6-2.i386.rpm

That will install the rpm for you

reboot
