    Hello,

    I've read this thread here (http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=95806), but wondered if it would be okay to upgrade to PHP 5.3.1. I'm new to Plesk and have found a quick guide here (http://www.christianmontoya.com/2008/10/01/upgrading-php-and-installing-apc-on-centos-5-with-plesk/) that mentions doing this:

    Code:
    # wget -q -O - http://www.atomicorp.com/installers/atomic.sh | sh
    # yum update php
    # service httpd restart
    # php -v
    Will this be okay or will it break Plesk?

    Many thanks.

    I would like to know the answer to this as well. If a parallels plesk employee could provide a response, that would be great.

    I have almost the same question.

    When will Parallels update the PHP version of Plesk Panel ?


    I run a dedicated server under Plesk Panel 9.5.4. Linux 2.6.32
    (hosted at ovh.es)

    PHP version is 5.0.4 and I need 5.3 or higher

    How can I get my Plesk Panel updated, or when does Parallels update it ?

    Thank you in advance.

    I think the reason this is coming up a lot, and I also need the answer, is that a lot of people may be using products like Joomla and now that 1.6+ requires PHP 5.2 or more, there are lots that need to upgrade.

    I am in a similar situation. I have 40 odd domains that are hosted using Plesk 9 and I need to upgrade PHP to support new versions of Joomla. Problem is, I have no idea what will break.

    I understand that the PHP relates to the OS, but the least Parallels could do is offer some advice, and not just a link to some other bit of information that does not really help.

    If anyone could help guide some noobs like me, that would be really good.

    Cheers
    John

    Generally you can take source files from next version of your OS and compile an updated php for your OS if it's not updated. Parallels can't do this as they build and compile plesk packages. You can run the latest httpd and php on your OS, if it's really old you may have to rebuild a lot of the support packages. In this case it's best to upgrade your OS.

    It wont effect plesk as it runs it's own php for itself.

    Cheers,
    David

    Thanks for the reply - but a noob as I am in all of this, I am still none the wiser.

    I feel I will have no choice but to pay for someone to complete this for me, as I am unsure where to start.

    The post stating that yum command not found is probably using a Debian Derived OS (i.e. Debian, Ubuntu etc) which doesn't use YUM, but apt-get instead.

    Look at using the dotdeb.org source instead
