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

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

$ gpg --keyserver hkp:// --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, so you should use the following lines your httpd.conf :

# Load php 5.6 module
LoadModule php5_module modules/

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

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

Please add /usr/share/pear after /usr/share/php56/pear/ to open_basedir in php.ini.

The PHP development team announces the immediate availability of PHP 5.6.31.
This is a security release. Several security bugs were fixed in this
release. All PHP 5.6 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

Why is this dependent on apache?

jc-aur commented on 2017-05-25 18:00

@mickael9 ah, feeling dumb. Totally forgot the -f command while doing the makepkg, sorry

@Ouraios @jc-aur These errors can be solved by a simple rebuild.

Update your system, THEN rebuild this package and everything should work as intended.

@foxxx0 I'm having the same problem but on the opposite side of the spectrum: openssl version outputs 'OpenSSL 1.1.0e 16 Feb 2017' which seems to be newer than 1.0.2d, what should I do, should I downgrade openssl? Not sure if that's the problem because the same output suggests there has been no changes since February and it was working yesterday, just didn't work today when tried to start apache

@foxxx0 it seems like php56is looking for openssl1.0.2d but now i have openssl1.0.2k on my system, so when php56 try to compile verything i got :

Cannot load modules/ into server: /usr/lib/ version `OPENSSL_1.0.2d' not found (required by /etc/httpd/modules/

Edit : Ok i just reinstalled the whole php56 packages and it worked.

With command :

yaourt -Sya php56

@graphicmist: yes, update your system...

graphicmist commented on 2017-05-23 05:59

I am getting error while building the package
error: target not found: openssl-1.0

I have openssl 1.0.2k
Any ideas how to fix this?

@Kaffka: the dependency on Apache is only required for php-apache and for building the packages (since this is a split package all php-* packages are built regardless of which you intend to install).
