I've just updated a server I haven't touched in months. Updated CPanel, mysql to 5.0.21, all server software etc.

I was doing the Apache update, setting the PHP version to 5.1.4 but it just ALWAYS reverts to installing PHP 4.4.x

Has anyone come across this issue or got a quick fix? This is on a mission critical application and I need to resolve the issue asap.

Cheers

You might see what happens when you do:

/usr/bin/php -v
/usr/local/bin/php -v

Also do you have any errors when apache updates?

Fixing this issue can be a true Advil headache.

cd /usr/lib/mysql
rename .a .a_old *.a
rename .la .la_old *.la

Then Re-compile php. When done, rename all the files back again. See if that helps!

bradlinux, I've had that problem in the past, but not for a long time.

I've decided to do a format and install. Fedora C1 was past its best days, time to move to the latest CentOS -- hopefully I won't run into the same problem :eek:

CentOS

I am currently using centos... I had been reading about easyapache and was kinda sketchy about trying it... Well being the brave soul I went ahead and proceeded... Luckly it fixed my problem... It took it back to php4 but it is better then it not working... Thanks for the info on the fixes... I will try again at a later time...

You most likely will, follow Andyreed's advice above if you have the error bradlinux had. We always have to rename the libs above and rename them back to compile php5.xx or above.
