Installing Plesk 8.4 on CentOS 5.2, 'php-common' package error

    I'm installing a brand-spanking-new server and want to get the latest versions of CentOS and Plesk but they don't seem to like each other. Specifically I'm getting an error complaining that I have a newer version of "php-common" package. It then directs me to create an .autoinstallerrc file with the path to the CentOS repository. I've done that and it seems happy with the url I gave it (http://mirrors.easynews.com/linux/centos/5.2/updates/i386) but it's still giving me the same error on install.

    Any help?

    Maybe try removing php-common if it exists already

    rpm -e php-common

    It's used by several packages including the main PHP5 package. Don't think I can just chop it out and not have something blow up.

    Try installing plesk through yum, that can handle the dependency resolution much better.
