but when i do an rpm -qa php the php installation does not show. i want to uninstall this version of php and install a new one. every time i try and install php5 it goes through but under phpinfo(), it still shows php 4.3.8.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

do this

Code: Select all

$ rpm -qa | grep php

you will find a list of installed php rpms,
which you need to remove by

Code: Select all

$ rpm -e [package name]

Fedora Core 1 is a baad idea. You are 2 versions out, and they are very deliberate about dropping support for dated Fedora releases. You'll be fighting this one alone in the dark.

so my main question i guess is how do i uninstall a tarball installation?

Try in /etc find where exactly PHP is placed and remove by hand.
"Sex,Drugs and Rock&Roll " replaced at "Sucks,Bugs and Plug&Play";

This is the worst part of *Nix systems, if you install by that method..
if the package does not provide its default uninstall shell script...
it is really bad... you will need to all the shared objects and binary files... which were used by php
