Problem installing php-mbstring

Post by rtcary » 2015/01/31 22:59:58

My Centos is 2.6.18-499.el5

php: 5.3.3

When I try to install php-mbstring, I get the following error:

Resolving Dependencies
--> Running transaction check
---> Package php-mbstring.i386 0:5.1.6-45.el5_11 set to be updated

Skip-broken could not solve problems
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

"yum update php" indicates that there are no updates.

"yum -y update" has installed all updates.

I am not a Linux guru (just run my Centos server for testing my web development applications), so my experience in how to deal with this is limited.

Thank you for any suggestions...

Try installing php53-mbstring instead.

(edit: moved this topic to a CentOS 5 subforum, as you seem to be running C5 instead of C6)
