I have a Thecus n5200 pro box on which I have the mysql and shh modules installed. I want to upgrade the php and add some packages that don't come with the mysql module by default. Specfically I want to upgrade the Php to 5.3 and enable ctype, dom, json and xsl.
So the problem: what command do I use to get new packages in the thecus linux build? I tried a number of linux package commands including apt-get but with no success.
Also should I be worried that by adding packages I might destabilize other functionality in my Thecus? I have had it for a couple years now and haven't yet rocked the boat (though I bought a second one to do backups on to), I would hate to ruin my record now.
