Topic: Proper howto

Hello everybody,

Is there a clean howto on Centos .
I have a typical configuration working, but what I have not achieved by now is the phpmyprepaid.
Is there a a simple installation howto on this ?

Re: Proper howto

I have just installed phpmyprepaid on my centos 4 box. i had to goto and download these files

MySQL-shared-compat-5.0.45-0.rhel4.i386.rpm   < not sure this file is needed

then i did a

yum localinstall *.rpm  it went away and got 150mb or there abouts other updates to enable MySQL 5 to be installed

1 reboot and edit /etc/my.cnf and # basedir in [mysql.server] ( it prevents mysql server starting)

# basedir=/var/lib

next i put phpmyprepaid in /var/www/html/phpmyprepaid

next i went to my browser


follow the instructions and phpmyprepaid is up and running clean and easy.

hope the above makes sense. the hardest part was upgrading MySQL from 4.x.x to 5.x.x i chose 5.0 and not 5.1 or 6 MySQL Server, it took a little reading and help from google to find the answer as to why MySQL wouldnt start.

Re: Proper howto

further to my install of phpmyprepaid...

I decided i wanted PHP5 installed as phpmyprepaid likes PHP5 apparently . .

i did this on my server console

   yum --enablerepo=centosplus -d 0 search php  # checks for php updates for files installed on my server

   yum --enablerepo=centosplus -y install php     # go away and get 30mb of updates for my system

   yum --enablerepo=centosplus upgrade php*   # < not sure about this line it didnt do anything.

to finish restart httpd and check your php version, mine is now PHP Version 5.1.6

I found the instructions here
