    PHP5 Upgrade


    Are there any installation repositories for upgrading PHP5 and other
    components, or can I use the openSUSE sources with caveat?

    Hi
    This gets asked an numerous times, if it's security related then check
    the changelogs as security fixes are backported. Features you can look
    at using the Open Build Service here for SLE rpms (just select in the
    drop down);
    http://software.opensuse.org/search?

    There may also be a later version on the SLE SDK, this and the Open
    Build Services rpms aren't supported as such.

    I wouldn't use openSUSE specific rpms as you will fall into all sorts
    of conflicts.

    If you want to share specifics on you end goal, there may be other
    options.

    It was for a specific software requirement 5.3.x for a content
    management
    system provided by Perforce Software (Chronicle).

    I was going to compile from source, but I wanted to avoid that as I
    also want to avoid recomiling apache from source if I ran into issues.

    It would be nice if there was a clear upgrade path.

    I would appreciate any feedback, thank you!

    Re: PHP5 Upgrade


    Which SLES version do you run, and which PHP version do you look for?
    depending on the answer to those questions there are several options.
    Thanks a lot in advance.

    SLES 11.1 (whatever is available from Novell) and 5.3+. Appreciate any
    feedback. Thank you.

    In that case I have good news. PHP 5.3 is added in SLES11.2 and we will
    perhaps also introduce it for SLES11.1 shortly.

    That is really great news since also Moodle 2.x requires PHP 5.3.2 or
    newer.

    Thanks,

    Thomas

    I'm having the very same issue, any clarification on "Shortly?"

    apparently not...

    I recieved this today from Novell Support.

    "The version of PHP that is currently in the beta testing of SLES11 SP2
    is php5-5.2.14-0.7.24.1. I don't anticipate any upgrades to 5.3 there,
    or in SLES11 SP1.

    Hope this helps. I will close the SR unless you need further assistance
    on this. Please advise.

    Thanks

    Thank you,

    Compilation would be the best way out (if using SLE). I've compiled it
    myself but for testing purpose. If it is a production server you may
    consider using some other Linux distribution with PHP-5.3 included by
    default. CentOS or Scientific Linux will do from the rpm based ones.
    Debian or Ubuntu are good from deb based distributions.
