multiplephp documentation now invalid

Just a FYI to people using the PHP54 SCL repository to run 5.4.16 alongside their stock 5.3.3. The repository was emptied out a few days ago. I left a message on the remi forum and it looks like there is a conflict with Red Hat about directory names.

The repository is gone, so people will get an error with yum when trying to install or update. Everything under "" was deleted.

This is the page that contains the information

A few revisions to this page are needed,

Looks like the PHP54 version is going to be maintained at 5.4.16, this is the same stock PHP version that will be used in RHEL 7/CentOS 7 when it comes out.

Looks like CentOS is going to be providing the PHP54 (at least for now)

This is still 64 bit only, When a new version is release it should be a semi direct upgrade, the files there have been there since Dec 2013.

Note: don't install this package "php54-php" this provides mod_php for the 5.4 package, it will conflict with the installed 5.3.3 package. (yum shouldn't let you anyways)

Existing installs:

rm -f /etc/yum.repos.d/software_collections_php54.repo
yum clean all
yum install centos-release-SCL

New installs:

yum install centos-release-SCL
yum install php54 php54-php-cli php54-php-mysql php54-php-gd

I also had seen that Scientific Linux has the same repository, but in 32 & 64 bit, but I don't know if it will remain updated or not. Or if it is completely compatible with CentOS.



Howdy -- thanks for all the info! I'll review all that and then post some updates here and in the documentation.
