These are not dependency issues, they're version conflicts.

You already have mysql components installed, so use

rpm -Uvh MySQL-server-5.5.29-1.linux2.6.x86_64.rpm

This will update the installed version, instead of just trying to install it.

I used yum install php to install it. however after I finished this installation, it shows the edition is only 5.3.3. (i got this information through the info.php page). But my the web site developer asked me at least prepare 5.4 for him. I have to upgrade it again.

Which way I should take? Can I use the same command as you provided above? Since the present edition was installed by yum, I am not sure rpm repository would recognize it.

My question is how to upgrade it from here? ,thank you a lot.

yum uses rpm behind the scenes, so it's no problem running "rpm -U ...", for mysql, php or whatever.

OK, seems you're trying to install a MySQL distribution different from the one you installed before.

So uninstall the previous version first.

rpm -e mysql-5.1.66-2.el6_3.x86_64
rpm -e mysql-server-5.1.66-2.el6_3.x86_64

Then run

rpm -ivh MySQL-server-5.5.29-1.linux2.6.x86_64.rpm

As for PHP - you downloaded the source tarball, which is meant to be compiled and linked by yourself.
Is this what you desire?
I'd rather suggest downloading and installing the appropriate RPM (binary) package.

thanks a lot, I will download the RPM package for PHP. Whichone should I run first to upgrade?

The developer is very annoying, he asked me to install these things exact the same version as he provided. I don't think there are lots of difference between versions.

thanks a lot.

After I upgrade, will it be working automatically or I need reconfigure it manually. I am not very good at LAMP setup, so kind of worry about it. thank you.

woolmilkporcCommented:
All paths should remain the same, but I'm not sure about config files.

Save the following configs before uninstalling, and restore them afterwards if necessary.

MySQL:

/etc/my.cnf
datadir/my.cnf

where datadir is the data directory of MySQL, by default /usr/local/mysql/data

PHP:

php.ini, in /etc, /usr/local/lib, /etc/httpd/... or your public html directory.

Hi, woolmilkporc:

Could you help me find an RPM package for PHP 5.4 or above? I plan to upgrade PHP first then MySQL. Thank you very much.

I got an article here: http://www.tecmint.com/install-apache-mysql-php-on-redhat-centos-fedora/

But I've already installed all the modules, just need to upgrade two of them, Do I need still follow this procedure, thank you.

PHP RPMs for Fedora are e.g. here:

FC19: http://www.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/fedora/devel/rawhide/x86_64/p/php-5.4.10-1.fc19.x86_64.html

FC18: http://www.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/fedora/updates/testing/18/x86_64/php-5.4.10-1.fc18.x86_64.html

I don't know which Linux distro you're on, so have a look at the full list:

http://www.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=php&submit=Search+...&system=&arch=

The procedure descriobed in your link is meant to install everything from scratch.

Of course you could uninstall not only MySQL but also PHP and Apache first to then follow the mentioned procedure. You will get Apache, MySQL 5.5.28 and PHP 5.4.10 and all required modules from Rémi Collet's repository, which is just OK.

Following the procedure you will end up with a consistent, up-to-date installation, so I think it's not a bad idea following it.

If you get "already installed" messages for modules you didn't uninstall try "yum reinstall" instead of "yum install", or remove them first by means of "rpm -e ..." or better "yum remove ...".

hi, woolmilkporc:

Got all three parts re-installed, they are working perfectly.

I first uninstalled all modules then follow that article to install Rémi Collet's repository.

BTW, what does Remi collet's mean, is it a name? And also what does repository mean?

thanks.

Rémi Collet is the name of a french guy who works on maintaining PHP and MySQL distributions.
His main goal is keeping the package collections consistent and much more up to date than the standard ones.

A repository is a collection of packages suitable for download and installation by a particular package management utility.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_repository

Your package management utility is YUM, and Rémi Collet's collection is a YUM repository.

YUM = Yellowdog Updater, Modified
