Trying to update pcre on CentOS 5.10 with Cpanel
Posted on 2013-12-06
I am trying to update the pcre install on CentOS 5.10 and am running into some issues I do not know how to address.
First things first, I am NOT a Linux guy so things that may seem obvious to you are unknown to me, keep that in mind.
I have successfully updated Apache from 2.0.x to 2.2.26. I have successfully updated PHP from 5.3.x to 5.4.22.
Running "pcretest -C" from the shell results in version 8.33. Running "php -i | grep -i pcre" shows PCRE Library Version 8.21. The 8.21 version is installed in /opt/pcre. The php config screen shows '--with-pcre-regex=/opt/pcre' so I see where it is getting the 8.21 version but I have absolutely no idea where the 8.33 version is or how to point the php configuration to it.
Any help appreciated.
