Dependency Updates

Need to update PHP, Apache, or MariaDB on your webserver?
Curator's upstream dependencies need updated every so often as well!


First and foremost: ensure all relevant Windows Updates have been applied to your server.

Next, update Curator dependencies.
Curator bundles PHP, Apache, and MariaDB into our simple installation package and updating is just as easy.

To update Curator, use our Curator Dependency Update Utility.

To use this utility, simply download it on your webserver and double-click to run.

Note: To upgrade MariaDB, you will need your root database password.
If you do not know this password, check your installation directory for an info.txt file, which contains the default credentials.


Linux's upstream repositorys handle dependency updates.
Make sure your operating system has the latest versions available by running simple OS updates.
        Note: If your operating system is exceptionally old, it may be locked to a particular version of a dependency.
        Reach out to support to ask about options for upgrading further.

RHEL, Amazon Linux AMI 1/2, CentOS:

sudo yum update -y;
sudo service httpd restart;
php -v;
httpd -version;


sudo apt update -y;
sudo apt upgrade -y;
sudo apt dist-upgrade -y;
sudo apt autoremove -y;
sudo service apache2 restart;

Legacy: RHEL 7 w/ EPEL
If you utilize an older version of RHEL with "epel" or "remi" sources, you may need to adjust these to upgrade PHP to a modern version.
First, use php -v to determine your version. This should output something like "PHP 7.2".

  • Disable the old PHP version using the yum-config-manager: sudo yum-config-manager --disable remi-php72
  • Next, enable PHP 7.4: sudo yum-config-manager --enable remi-php74
  • Finally, run yum update to grab the latest PHP version: sudo yum update -y;
  • Restart HTTPD to finalize: sudo service httpd restart
  • If you run into any issues, try using the command below to ensure all dependencies are installed:
sudo yum install -y -q php php-mysqlnd php-common php-gd;
sudo yum install -y -q php-mbstring php-memcached php-devel;
sudo yum install -y -q php-xml php-pear php-pdo php-pecl-zip php-mbstring;
sudo service httpd restart;
