ApacheUpdate won't work, need to upgrade from PHP4 to PHP5


May 7, 2009
I'm attempting to upgrade from PHP4 to PHP5 so I can run the new Vbulletin, however every time I try using EasyApache to change the PHP version, I get the following error...

Can anyone here help me out with this?

This means that Cpanel::SysPkgs's config check returned a failed status and does not have a way to try to fix what it detected. You will need to manually troubleshoot your OS's update system at this point.

Try to run yum update or run upcp forcefully.

You are running Fedora 5 that is outdated. Make sure that yum is working on your server as cpanel uses yum to update installed packages. If yum will be working fine, easyapache will go fine. Verify yum working by installing any package like

yum install lynx


yum install subversion
