do a “rpm -qa | grep iworx” and those are the packages that we generally support and that you should either not touch, or upgrade with care. If you have packages that you want to alter (apache, php etc) and recompile I suggest using our SRPMS, which are available here:
NodeWorx uses a GUI for YUM to keep your RPM’s up to date (if you have auto-update turned on). Some come from their mirrors of the main OS download sote (CentOS, Fedora, etc.) others come from the site they have set up for the RPM’s that Chris mentioned.
We have boxes up now that support php5 and installing php5 in general won’t affect iworx-cp at all. iworx-cp uses its own version of php for just this purpose :). If you’d like I can make the php5 RPMs available and write a quick howto.

Every Howto are always usefull
Is there an easy way to have both php4 and php5 and let the interworx-cp’ client choose which version he will use ?
Interworx has its own copy of PHP4 running, if you upgrade to php5 it will be for the sites on the server only as I am figuring out. My problem is its loading php4 somewhere I cannot find and when i tell it to load php5 it does not act nice and nothing php loads
That’s gonna happen with a lot of PHP scripts. Even the newest 4.x versions are causing problems with existig scripts since they are adding php5 functionality. Is it really “nothing” that works? Have you tried a variety of things to make sure it isn’t just certain things?
It wasnt anything broken by PHP5, it was just i had overlooked a config file (php.conf in conf.d folder) that was loading PHP4 module and i was also loading PHP5 module creating a conflict in handler so it wouldnt even begin to process the php. One way Ive found to go around that is renaming a few things and adding a handler for *.php4 to use PHP4 as the processor and PHP5 for standard PHP files. I have yet to actually test it but if anyone wants to know if it works i can definately give it a try.
So you have both PHP4 and PHP5 running at the same time? I think I may want to try that, but in the opposite way you did. “.php” would run the PHP4 file and “.php5” would run new stuff. That way I could slowly migrate over to PHP5.
