Need help updating PHP 5.2 to 5.3 (on Debian Lenny)

I need to update 5.2 to 5.3 in one of our servers urgently. My unix skills are limited so please be as specific as possible.

Is there any way to do this easily with apt-get upgrade ?

Answer

There are instructions available that might work at http://www.debiantutorials.com/how-to-install-upgrade-to-php-5-3-on-debian-lenny/

But you need to first have working backups in place. Best to test this on another install somewhere else to make sure there aren’t any “gotchas”, and if this is a production server and something goes wrong,…

Your support documentation is up to date, yes?
