Problems with CentOS PHP 5.3 with Curl

I tried installing Php-Curl on CentOS, but i just keep getting this error:

yum install php-curl
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base:
 * extras:
 * updates:
Setting up Install Process
Resolving Dependencies
--> Running transaction check
---> Package php53-common.i386 0:5.3.3-13.el5_8 set to be updated
--> Processing Conflict: php53-common conflicts php-common
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
php53-common-5.3.3-13.el5_8.i386 from updates has depsolving problems
  --> php53-common conflicts with php-common
Error: php53-common conflicts with php-common
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I did the:

package-cleanup --problems


package-cleanup --dupes

But still aint working

Can someone help me with this?

    Is that the only depsolv issue? If you get depsolvs on everything it could be an error in the template

  • @ShardHost said: Is that the only depsolv issue? If you get depsolvs on everything it is likely an error in the template

    Many of the OpenVZ CentOS templates are broken to the core.

    Its because a lot of CentOS templates are broken and/or can be broken. Almost always related to python and very annoying to trace it to the real cause and fix it.

  • If you have the ability to, try replacing the template. Its possible it was an incomplete copy/sync

  • Move from Centos :')

    PS, it seems to be it was attempting to install php 5.3. Did you have PHP 5.2 installed?

  • @vdnet i had 5.3 installed

  • vdnetvdnet Member

    Strange, usually php53-common would already be installed then.

    Well a workaround could have been probably uninstall php-common, install php53-common then try again but looks like you have already switched to Deb

    • P.S. Personally I like to compile from source and just save the configure options you use. That way you can quickly get PHP updated for security updates and not have to wait for the OS to put out new packages.
  • Are you sure it wasn't already there? Using PHP 5.3 (from IUS repo, though, not mainline) on Cent/SL and I have curl showing up in phpinfo even though there is no curl package installed.
