First: If this is in the wrong forum, I apologize. My question is more concerned with figuring out the correct configuration with the Apache2 web server than with anything dealing particularly with PHP. I simply did not see an appropriate forum for this type of topic. If such a forum exists, would a moderator please move this thread into it?
I have been, for the past two weeks or so, attempting to upgrade a computer from php 4.3.4 to php 5.1.6. I have tracked down all of the files I thought I would need to modify. However, I have obviously missed something somewhere- when I try to run the phpinfo() command, the resulting information indicates that I'm still running php 4.3.4.
For the record, I am attempting to install/upgrade on a system running SuSE 9 linux. I believe it is SuSE 9.3, but I am not completely certain of that. I am also attempting to do this remotely, so I am afraid that solutions involving direct access to the machine are not a viable option for me.
I have sought aid for this in various places, and the assistance I have received at another computer help forum included a statement that, based on the results of the phpinfo command, the apache2 server was not drawing from the newly-created php 5.1.6 install, but instead still drawing from the older 4.3.4 installation.
I am very new to such installations; this is my first attempt at doing so. I have, at the moment, only a vague notion what I should be looking for, and am getting quickly confused as to what file or files I should be trying to modify to get apache2 to use my 5.1.6 installation of php. I have tried looking over various .conf files in the apache2 directory on my system, but without knowing what I'm looking for, I could easily have glanced over it without recognizing it.
If anyone out there is willing to offer some useful suggestions as to what files I should be looking for or at, I would be very grateful.
Thank you for your consideration,
