PHP 5.6 will stop getting security updates in January 2019. Consider upgrading to PHP 7 now

PLEASE READ : For those who are getting "unknown public key" errors, this is NOT caused by this package. It means GPG is not configured to fetch public keys automatically (which is normal by default)

Please read the instructions at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Makepkg#Signature_checking

The easiest way to overcome this is to manually import the keys from a keyserver :

$ gpg --keyserver hkp://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 --recv-keys C2BF0BC433CFC8B3 FE857D9A90D90EC1

foxxx and I have been working together and this package can now be installed along PHP 7 from the official repos.

Everything has been moved into separate directories :

Config : /etc/php56
Extensions : /usr/lib/php56/modules
Binaries : /usr/bin/php56, /usr/bin/php56-cgi, /usr/bin/phar56, etc.

If you were previously using this as a replacement for php7, you'll have to adjust the new configuration files in /etc/php56/ to reflect the current ones in /etc/php/.

Apache module (provided by php56-apache) also has a specific configuration and CAN NOT cohabit with php7_module. Use php-fpm, fcgi or cgi if you need both versions.

The apache module is installed as libphp56.so, so you should use the following lines your httpd.conf :

# Load php 5.6 module
LoadModule php5_module modules/libphp56.so

# Use it for .php extensions
Include conf/extra/php56_module.conf

Please let me know if you encounter any problem or have a suggestion.

For anyone who is interested (or in need) of some extensions for this php56, I have prepared some packages:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/php56-apcu/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/php56-geoip/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/php56-memcache/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/php56-memcached/

That should be sufficient for most users, please contact me if I've missed something important.

If any of these packages is malfunctioning, please use the *comment* function on the affected package.

Nice, thank you.
@foxxx, I completely agree regarding /usr/local, my pkgbuild was a proof of concept rather than a final solution :-)

@marcvangend: Thanks for your input, but I've taken a different approach as package manager shouldn't touch anything in /usr/local.


The patch is ready and submitted to mickael9 for review.

I'll start working on packages like php56-apcu, php56-geoip, etc... now.

marcvangend commented on 2016-01-12 09:18

@foxxx Ha, I have been doing exactly the same lately :-) Here is what I came up with: https://bitbucket.org/marcvangend/php56. Feel free to use / fork / merge / learn / open issues / whatever.

@mickael9, @bladesuk1, @<anyone-who-is-interested>:

I've spent the last couple of hours to rework this package to allow it to co-exist with the upstream php (version 7) packages.

Making use of the --prefix compile time option of php I moved the whole php56 stuff to /opt/php56/{bin,lib,share,[...]}, changed the paths in the configs and patches as well as a standalone php56-fpm.service.

I'm not sure about the apache mod_php stuff, how that fits in with an upstream php version 7 package, but using php56-fpm should be fine.

When I'm done testing and verifying together with Bluewind, I'll submit a git patch to mickael9.

Stay tuned, it should not take more than a couple of days to verify/test/debug the remaining part.

5.6.17 has been released, it's a security release so you should update ASAP

@spiritabsolute @bruddy: please see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Makepkg#Signature_checking for GPG issues (make sure you're able to fetch the keys using gpg --recv-keys 33CFC8B3 90D90EC1).

@bladesuk1: you can always remove the conflicts/provides lines in the PKGBUILD so that it installs, give it a try

mysqli module is in the php56 package

bladesuk1 commented on 2016-01-08 11:17

i don't suppose there's any way to run this in parallel with php7, is there? i only need php56 via php-fpm, but installing this replaces php7 rather than installing it side-by-side...

if not, is there any chance that you could add php-mysqli into the build as well?

spiritabsolute commented on 2016-01-08 07:15

Error during installation "php-5.6.16.tar.xz ... FAILED (unknown public key C2BF0BC433CFC8B3)".

Originally installed php 7.
Then packages php and php-Apache were removed.
Help me to understand.

@R00KIE: Good point, I did it for all packages in the group.
