php help

Not sure how to proceed but here it is..

I have redhat default php installed in /usr/bin...

[root@dtccdr bin]# which php
[root@dtccdr bin]# /usr/bin/php -v
PHP 4.3.9 (cgi) (built: May 4 2007 11:04:51)
Copyright (c) 1997-2004 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v1.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2004 Zend Technologies
[root@dtccdr bin]#

I have another version installed in /usr/local/bin/php..

[root@dtccdr bin]# /usr/local/bin/php -v
PHP 5.2.2 (cgi) (built: May 27 2007 15:52:45)
Copyright (c) 1997-2007 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.2.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2007 Zend Technologies
[root@dtccdr bin]#

Now we would like to use the 5.2.2 and I need to know where to specify the path stement so it will always look at this one versus the one in /usr/local.

The customer doesn't want us removing the older version.

Thakns and points will be assigned.

Re: php help


Specify '/usr/local/bin' ahead of '/usr/bin' in your PATH variable to get the 5.2.2 version by default, first.

Re: php help

You have to modify your PATH environment variable to list first the /usr/local/bin/ directory, for example:

export PATH=/usr/local/bin/:$PATH

Then you have to ensure that the apache configuration to use the right php_module, normally the file is /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf.

Re: php help

Ivan was almost somewhat correct.

Here are my findings..

I looked at the version of php that was installed and although it is the correct version, it does not have any modules installed for apache and thus apache cannot use this version.
