version/install issues

Recommended Posts

Dear All


Please can someone help?  I get different version of php used from the command line than I get with a browser.  I've tried removing all php with 'apt-get remove' and deleted everything php that I dared like...

  350  rm -rf /var/lib/php*

  351  rm -rf /usr/local/bin/php*

  352  rm -rf /usr/bin/php*

  353  rm -rf /etc/php*

  364  rm -rf /var/lib/dpkg/info/php*

  369  rm -rf /usr/share/phpmyadmin

  372  rm -rf /usr/share/php5

  375  rm -rf /usr/share/doc/phpmyadmin

  378  rm -rf /usr/share/doc/php5*

  381  rm -rf /usr/local/lib/php

  384  rm -rf /usr/local/include/php

  387  rm -rf /usr/lib/php5

  388  rm -rf /usr/bin/php

  389  rm -rf /etc/cron.d/php5

  429  rm -rf /usr/local/lib/php


Then configured and installed php-5.3.3. From the command line I get php-5.3.3 with mysql...


root# php /var/www/html/php_info.php 
<center>php info file</center><br><br>
PHP Version => 5.3.3

System => Linux bicr-bioinf4 2.6.24-28-generic #1 SMP Wed May 26 23:34:09 UTC 2010 x86_64
Build Date => Aug 19 2010 12:05:17
Configure Command =>  './configure'  '--with-mysql'


but loading the same file in a browser I get 5.2.4 with no mysql...

I've stopped and started apache, closed and opened various browsers, so I know I'm looking at the right server and it's not chached.


What am I missing?


Many thanks

Thanks for replying


I hadn't realised #php -v and #php /var/www/html/php_info.php were also giving different versions of php!


php5-cli was installed and removed with apt-get and apt-get claims it's not installed now...

#apt-get remove php5-cli

Package php5-cli is not installed, so not removed

I've tried again to delete all the php files, restarted apache and when I load php_info.php in a browser PHP Version 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.10 is still running?!?  but I can't use php from the command line because there's no executable.  (I have check that edits to php_info.php are shown in the browser).


I need to be able to get rid of PHP Version 5.2.4 or reconfigure it --with-mysql.

Any suggestions?
