Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11

Fedora Core 7 server, Plesk 8.3
PHP 5.2.4 & MySQL 5.0.45
1. How do I safely update PHP to PHP 5.2.5 & MySQL 5.0.51 ? Is there any step-by-step instructions out there ?
2. I want to be prepared when PHP 5.3 & MySQL 5.1 are released because these 2 are major releases and I want these 2 to be my base for coding.
MySQL 5.1 is a different server from MySQL 5.0 - how do I replace MySQL 5.0 with MySQL 5.1 ?
I have root access only through SSH - Putty. No GUI.
[root@servername ~]# yum update php
Setting up Update Process
Could not find update match for php

In terms of keeping up-to-date with security patches and not breaking dependencies, I always recommend sticking with the versions of PHP and MySQL that your distro shipped with.
If you really need updated versions, it's probably better to update the entire distro - have you checked if the version you want to use are included in Fedora 8?
