Upgrade PHP

Postby wnylibrarian » 23. April 2017 16:17

I have Xampp version 1.6.8 with PHP version 5.2.6. I'd like to upgrade the PHP to the current version. Does anyone have instructions on the best way to go about doing this? I'm running Open SUSE 11.

Backup all your webapplications and their databases, uninstall your xampp bundle and reinstall the xampp version you wish. After that you can restore your webapplications and databases.

Okay. Hopefully there's a 32-bit version out there somewhere.

Perhaps I can find just a 32-bit PHP version and replace that?

We don't provide any support for single core applocarion replacements.
So yes, you could try that, but you are on your own with that with all the consequences like corrupt data, errors, etc.

Well problem solved, and I didn't have to search for a 32-bit PHP upgrade. Issue ended up being that version of PHP would not read a bit field in MySQL.

Always love when the solution is simple. Thank you for your assistance.
