I have been planning to upgrade my PHP to version 5.2.1 since several weeks ago, but I couldn't find spare time to do that until last night.
I upgraded the following packages (libedit is a new install) :
# rpm -Uvh php5-5.2.1-15.1.i586.rpm apache2-mod_php5-5.2.1-15.1.i586.rpm php5-gd-5.2.1-15.1.i586.rpm php5-mysql-5.2.1-15.1.i586.rpm php5-zlib-5.2.1-15.1.i586.rpm php5-pdo-5.2.1-15.2.i586.rpm php5-fastcgi-5.2.1-15.2.i586.rpm libedit-2.10.snap20061228-6.1.i586.rpm
After successfully upgraded those packages, I started my Apache webserver :
# rcapache2 start
Then I launched my browser and access the test file (index.php). The content only contains phpinfo() function.
Unfortunately, I can only see blank page.
I checked the error log and access log, but I can't find the error messages.Next I check the PHP configuration (/etc/php5/apache/php.ini).
After looking through the configuration file around 11%, I found out what is the cause of this error. It looks like the new configuration turn-off the short_open_tag.There are two things that I can do to fix this :
- I can turn on the short_open_tag config by setting :
short_open_tag = On
