Hello guys,

I have PHP 5.1.x installed on my Fedora server and I want to upgrade it. I wonder how can I do that and keep all settings, config files, paths etc as is?

I've googled for this, but found nothing about this situation (found only general info).

All your settings should be kept by default by the Fedora package manager, that is if PHP was installed via up2date or yum or whichever one it is that Fedora uses. Even via a tarball, it'd still probably at least rename the files before replacing them, if it replaced them at all.

[us.php.net...] is the documentation you'd want. It doesn't have a "Migrating Configuration Files" like the 4.x to 5.x upgrade guide, so that's a good indication it doesn't mess with any config files.
