PHP & Roundcube

RoundCube released it's 0.2 stable version, but it requires PHP 5.2! I'm updating system & virtualmin packages regularly, and it doesn't says that PHP 5.2 version is available for automatic upgrade. How to upgrade PHP, because I'm user of RoundCube!

The availability of PHP 5.2 depends on what UNIX/Linux system you are running. You may get more information about the PHP version and how to upgrade to a newer one at the UNIX Vendors or Linux distribution web pages.

You may also use third party PHP packages like the "bleeding edge package" for RHEL/CentOS at:,com_openwiki/Itemid,48/id,vir...

Hi. I'm using Centos5. Also above link is okay (I gues) but I don't know which one to use and how to check which one of them is needed in order to not screew-up the 'functional PHP'.

Thanks again.

If your goal is to use PHP from the bleeding edge repository -- all of the PHP5 packages you're using would need to be from that repository.

That is, if you run this command:

rpm -qa | grep php

All the packages that are part of PHP 5 -- you'd need to upgrade those with what's in the repository.

If you're using a distribution such as CentOs 5, it comes with PHP 5.1.6.

However, Virtualmin offers a bleeding edge repository you can use to upgrade to PHP 5.2.14. You can read about how to use the bleeding edge repository here:
