[ Zend Server Cluster Manager 5.x ]
[ Redhat 5, CentOS 5, Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 ]
When installing Zend Server Cluster Manager on versions 5.0 to 5.2 of RHEL, CentOS or Oracle Enterprise Linux systems, the following error indicating there is a conflict may appear:
Error: php-5.3-fcgi-zend-server conflicts with php-5.2-fcgi-zend-server
Since PHP 5.2 and PHP 5.3 FastCGI packages depend on different libcurl versions, the YUM installer should choose the correct package automatically. However, due to a bug in the older versions of YUM, the installation will fail with a conflict.
This problem only applies to versions 5.0 to 5.2 of RHEL, Centos and Oracle Enterprise Linux, and is no longer relevant since version 5.3.
Resolution / Workaround
The simple workaround to this problem is to explicitly specify the correct curl package as part of the yum command to prevent the possible conflict:
Alternatively, upgrade the affected OS to version 5.3 or later before installing Zend Server Cluster Manager, to prevent this error from occurring.
