Hi,

I have wampserver2 installed with php version 5.3.10. How can I update the current php version installed to the latest version (without reinstalling wampserver)?

Thanks!

That is SUPER. Thanks!

I'm having couple of problems though...

1. Where should I find the VC6 or VC9 notations? How can I determine what compiled version I have?

2. When I download the php5.5.0 from php.net/downloads.php I have this hierarchy: [postimg.org]

3. And last - It's not a troubleshoot, but I wonder - in your post the php version is 5.5.11 and in php.net the latest version is 5.5.0. How come?

I've tried installing the new version regardless of the above and as expected - it didn't work smiling smiley

Q3. Its based on PHP5.5.11 because it's a typo, it should have read 5.4.11 and that was what I was doing when I wrote these notes for myself.

Q2 You downloaded the source and not the pre-built version

Q3. Now you need VC11 built suites


You have more to do that i/you expected.

If you want to install PHP 5.5.0 you also have to install a new Apache as well.
php 5.5.0 is compiles and linked with VC11 so it has to be run with an Apache that was compiled and linked using VC11

Also stick with the 32 bit versions of Apache and PHP as the 64 bit PHP is still experimental as of (26/June/2013)



You will need to download
PHP version 'VC11 x86 Thread Safe (2013-Jun-20 02:51:53)' [windows.php.net]

Apache version 'Apache 2.4.4 Win32 - Same as the Win32 VC10', but build with VC11 x86 [www.apachelounge.com]




ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO DO ALL THIS??

Got it. Thank you SO MUCH. You helped me a lot with all the explanations and references.

"ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO DO ALL THIS??"

Well, I'm a newbie starting to work on a new project and wanted everything to be new and updated, but I don't think I *really need* it now. It is taking quite some time already, so I guess I'll continue working with the php5.3.10 version, and update to a newer version in the future. But this update will need to happen eventually, and when the time comes, I'll refer back to this thread!

Thanks again smiling smiley

Ok ,

I may have a go at it myself and write a tutorial as I go. I will send it to you when I get it done, but no promises on a time frame.
