PHP installation conflicts on Centos6

Questions:

I’m new to server and linux and I ran into some problems. I’m trying to update my PHP by looking for linux commands through the net. Some commands ran perfectly but some not.

I tried using this command to install php-gd since I have this error message ‘Required GD library is missing’. So, I tried to run this below:

yum install php-gd

However, it give me this error message below:

php56w-common conflicts with php-common-5.3.3-46.el6_6.x86_64

Here are some info on my server:

[[email protected] ~]# rpm -ql php
package php is not installed

[[email protected] ~]# rpm -qa php\*
php56w-pdo-5.6.11-1.w6.x86_64
php56w-5.6.11-1.w6.x86_64
php56w-cli-5.6.11-1.w6.x86_64
php56w-common-5.6.11-1.w6.x86_64
php56w-mysql-5.6.11-1.w6.x86_64

[[email protected] ~]# rpm -Va php\*

[[email protected] ~]# which php
/usr/bin/php

[[email protected] ~]# php -v

Do you know what have I done wrong upgrading my php? Should I remove all php files on my server and reinstall? How?

How to&Answers:

Solved it by removing all php using “yum remove php php-common”

and modified the filename “remi.repo” under the folder /etc/yum.repos.d like below:

[remi-php56]
name=Remi's PHP 5.6 RPM repository for Enterprise Linux 6 - $basearch
#baseurl=http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/6/php56/$basearch/
mirrorlist=http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/6/php56/mirror
# WARNING: If you enable this repository, you must also enable "remi"
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

making sure that php56 is enabled=1.

Answer:

Go to /etc/yum.repos.d.
Remove the extra repository that you can see in your complete error message.

Answer:

You should run:

yum install php56w-gd

So when install php-extension have error:

*-common conflicts with php-common-5.3.3-46.el6_6.x86_64

Just type *-extension

Example:

yum install php-fpm have error

Error: php56u-common conflicts with php-common-5.3.3-46.el6_7.1.x86_64

then you should run

yum install php56u-fpm

The reason of this error is you install a php version don’t match the system repo version. So yum get a version of the system repo, but this don’t compatible with the php version you have installed. When you specific the php version, yum get the right version, so happy!

Answer:

If you are using Centos 6.7 and have php 5.6 installed, the following command worked for me:

sudo yum install php56w-pecl-xdebug.x86_64 (I was installing xdebug, not GD)

I found this by running yum search php56
