RE: [PHP] php installation in different location

Could you explain/clarify what you are trying to accomplish.

You initially asked how to install a second version of php in a
different location. In your more recent post you asked how to
uninstall the older/existing install in order to install the latest

Why are you interested in installing the new version in a "different
location" if you are going to uninstall the existing version?
Installing the version you intend to use in a different location has
effects on other bits - like the apache php module - so something to
be avoided if you don't need to.

Are you trying to install a new version from a repository or source?
If source, why, what "must have" capability is unavailable in a
packaged release? If package, why do you want to install it in a
different location? 

There may be value/need to build from source, but in general the best
approach is to keep things within your package management system by
building a package and installing that, rather than having the source
build do the installing.
