I'm testing an upgrade of PHP using SCLs. The testing is happening on a local VM so its OK to break things as we develop a procedure. Following The SCL Repositories I was able to update Python to 2.7.13 and activate it through
profiles.d/. I'm now trying to upgrade Apache and PHP.
According to Apache Downloads the latest is Apache 2.4.29. When I attempt to update Apache with
yum install httpd I am told Package httpd-2.4.6-67.el7.centos.6.x86_64 already installed and the latest. And if I use
yum install httpd24 then SCL tries to install Apache 1.18.
yum search httpd is not that helpful. It lists the packages (and sometimes notes SCL) but it lacks version numbers.
How does one install the latest Apache and PHP when using SCL programs?
