I'm trying to set up CentOS 6.4 (Linux 2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64) with a specific version of PHP (5.2.17) as it is required by an app I'm trying to install.
I've downloaded the PHP version and dependencies. This version of PHP requires a downgraded php-common which then required an earlier libcurl.
On trying to downgrade libcurl to the required version yum fails as it seems yum itself depends on this. Which makes sense really.
The list of packages that would be affected (and erased) is huge. So it seems that this version of PHP is a bridge too far as libcurl is just too embedded.
Should I start again with an earlier version of CentOS? I'm new with Linux but might it be that PHP is el5 but CentOs is el6?
PHP package: php-5.2.17-1.el5.art.x86_64.rpm
