We have a few servers running CentOS 6.2 deploying web applications using Apache/ MySQL/ PHP.
In the past we've just regularly run "yum update" to keep all the software up to date.
As of right now the installed versions are:
- Apache 2.2.15
- MySQL 5.1.61
- PHP 5.3.3
When the latest released versions are:
- Apache 2.4.1
- MySQL 5.5.21
- PHP 5.3.10
We're web developers with a bit of Linux knowledge rather than server administrators so we want to be able keep everything patched to the latest (or near) version without having to go into the depths of compiling software or too much command line jiggery-pokery.
What is the best way for us to easily maintain the latest versions (or at least late as possible versions) on CentOS 6.2?
