How would I install the latest PHP and MySQL programs on my Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Server

Hello everyone,

I am not a Linux user, so Linux is a little difficult for me to navigate.   I have a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 server for my Intranet.   Currently, I am not sure if it has PHP and MySQL installed.  If both programs are installed, not all components are active because the Marketing department tried updating our internal web site with php and it did not work.

Can someone help with the following:
1) Provide me with the commands and instructions to uninstall the current PHP and MySQL versions and re-install the latest version of PHP and MySQL.

2) Or help me ensure I have all the components of PHP and MySQL currently installed on RHEL 4 turned on and running.

All the help is most appreciated since this is the first time I am actually playing around with a Linux server.   My experience has been with Windows so I would really like some assistance with Linux.  Thanks.

Very Informative - since I am a notice at Linux, I had to struggle in order to get the results I wanted.  But both solutions were very beneficial.
