Ubuntu 10.04.4 upgrade php 5.3.2 to 5.3.6

For anyone who wants to upgrade Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to PHP 5.3.10, this is how I have done it. Note sudo apt-add-repository ppa:brianmercer/php5 doesn’t work anymore. Suspect has been taken down.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:brianmercer/php5
will not work anymore

However the steps below do work!!

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bjori/php5
sudo apt-get update

sudo aptitude show php5
Package: php5
State: not installed
Version: 5.3.6-8ubuntu0ppa4~lucid1
Priority: optional
Section: php
Maintainer: Hannes Magnusson

sudo aptitude install php5 php5-cli
php -v

If phpmyadmin cannot connect to mysql error: #2002 cannot log in to the mysql server, edit my.cnf
sudo nano /etc/mysql/my.cnf

Update -> bind-address =

To -> bind-address = localhost

This fixed the problem. Enjoy.
