I need to upgrade php 4.3.7 to version 5.0.0 on slackware linux. Do I
need to uninstall 4.3.7 first or will installing 5.0.0 just overwrite
the 4.3.7 version? I'm running Apache with php.

Quoted text here. Click to load it

Usually, when you configure, then issue a make install, you will end up
overwriting your current php binaries.
What I normally do is I rename php to the version php4.3.7 and I ln -s to

A new install will now only overwrite the symbolic link.
