How to update PHP 5.x EZ template on a Container to version 5.3

I have a Container with the "php5" EZ template on it. When I try to install the "pp10-php53" EZ template to that Container, the installation fails with the following error:

--> Processing Conflict: php53-common conflicts php-common
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
php53-common-5.3.3-1.el5_6.1.i386 from base5 has depsolving problems
  --> php53-common conflicts with php-common
Error: php53-common conflicts with php-common

The article applies to Parallels Virtuozzo Containers versions based on CentOS 5.x and Parallels Plesk Panel version 9.5.4 and later versions.


1. Download the template below which corresponds to your Container's architecture:

MD5 SUM: 1fb73386281d1429458a70a3ae5d860b

MD5 SUM: bfeec658e6360f5636351319478ceaa6

2. Install it to the Hardware Node.

3. Update PHP on the Container by installing the above template to it:

# vzpkg install CTID pp-php53-update

Additional information

- The template is not for standalone installation to a Container and must be installed either on a Container with Parallels Plesk Panel, or in the same transaction with other Parallels Plesk Panel templates.

- The template cannot be installed to Containers where the php53 template is already present; if attempted, the installation will fail.

- The template must not be installed in the same transaction with the pp{*}-php53 template; if attempted, the template will be installed, but the transaction will be marked as "failed," and the installed templates will not be registered on the Container.

- PHP 5.3 installation is performed by means of the autoinstaller utility, using this command:

# /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/autoinstaller --select-release-current --install-component php53

As the packages are installed inside the Container, an insignificant increase of disk space usage will occur.
The autoinstaller utility also needs virtual memory in amounts of up to 200 MB on some operating systems. If the template installation fails due to lack of memory (failcnt value will increase in /proc/user_beancounters), increase the amount of memory available to the Container and retry the procedure.
