Hello experts,

Can anyone plz tell me from where i can download php5 for rhel 5? I went to http://www.php.net/downloads.php and download the source code from there but i couldnt unzip it. I searched then the red hat site for a php download and couldnt find anything either. Can anyone be kind enough to give me a link to download it and instructions if necessary?

Thanx in advance.

You can download PHP 5 SRPM from official redhat site or centos site
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/enterprise/5Server/en/os/SRPMS/
rpm --rebuild filename.src.rpm
cd /usr/src/redhat/RPM/

rpm -iv filename.rpm

I downloaded the rpm for php but when i try to install it, it says  that i miss specific packages. Those are:

1) httpd
2) httpd-mmn
3) libgmp.so.3
4) php-cli
5) php-common

I havent managed to find httpd-mmn and libgmp. However whenever i try to install the other 3 packages then it says that some other packages are missing. For example when i try to install httpd then i get this error message:

warning: httpd-2.2.3-6.el5.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 37017186
error: Failed dependencies:
        libapr-1.so.0 is needed by httpd-2.2.3-6.el5.i386
        libaprutil-1.so.0 is needed by httpd-2.2.3-6.el5.i386

Can anyone help and tell me what i need to do in order to solve this and install php? Do i need to go and download one by one every package that ask me to do? I have seen this happening one more time when i tried to install oracle but i found a solution there when i installed 1 single package and all the dependencies were gone.

So far i have installed httpd,  libgmp, php common and php cli. I only miss httpd-mmn in order to install the php package. However i can run now a php script. How is this possible since i haven't installed yet the php rpm? And what is happening with httpd-mmn? I thought that after the installation of httpd, that dependency would have been sorted out.
If i install now the php rpm with --nodeps will it be ok?

What about just using yum to install it via console?

yum install php

 yum list installed httpd

For the last command you posted i get the following results:

[root@localhost tmp]# yum list installed httpd
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
[root@localhost tmp]#
