I am now running PHP Release 4.1.2-3, and I think I've used a package installer from Pkgmaster.com. Now I want to upgrade to 4.3.1 because some huge security leaks are found in the version I'm currently using.
How do I install PHP 4.3.1 in a save way? I don't mind compiling it myself. I just need some good instructions, so I don't break anything
You can do it yourself
Before beginning you will need to see what is compiled into your PHP install using a php info page.
YOU MAY NOT be able to replicate the original install, as the pkgs are usually compiled with a lot of rather particular settings etc.
If you then follow the instructions on PHP.net for compiling you should be ok.
NOTE: Make sure you don't try doing this close to log-rotation time - you can seriously overload a RAQ if you do
