I'm trying to upgrade PHP on my Fedora Core 6 web server. I currently have 5.1.6, all I need is verson 5.2 or higher, it is a requirement of some software I want to install. I am not really a server admin or very Linux savvy, I've been able to get around doing what I need to use this a web development server, but trying to do this is beyond me. I tried updating using yum, but I guess the latest version in the Fedora Core 6 repositories are 5.16. I've never really dealt with installing binaries, so I am stumped as to how to get this done.
Anyone have detailed instructions and the necessary files for me to do this. Any help is greatly appreciated.
