wonderful. thanks a lot.
One question: how to install both Atomic PHP 5.3 and Atomic PHP 5.4 side by side to benefit from the new Plesk11.5 feature of multiple PHP versions?

I havent looked at that, but if I had to guess thats probably an fcgi-only type implementation using alternate directories. Architecturally It could certainly be done using software collections as a different package name than "php".

yes, thanks. The new feature works with the FastCGI or CGI handlers.
Thought it would be nice being able to cover this package based via a repo.

Its on the list. The one time I did experiment with the SCL stuff from redhat, the users were pretty confused by it, so its going to involve some R&D time (also known as "staring at a wall for a few hours") on the right way to put it together.

thanks a lot. looking forward to it. stupid question/"idea"...can't you just take the existing atomic package and tweak the final directories/necessary filenames a little bit (e.g by adding php-5.3-xxxxx) and rebuild it?

You could, but I hate that. It causes all kinds of downstream dependency problems and worse... user confusion. Explaining that takes a lot of time. It might make more sense to call it "some-bizzare-name-that-is-associated-with-alternalte-php-version-on-a-plesk-machine-and-only-a-plesk-machine-so-please-stop-asking-me-about-it.rpm". Like I said... must stare at wall.

We upgraded this morning, and are running into an issue with Roundcube and suhosin. The available workaround is disabling suhosin completely, which is a bit drastic. I reopened a Roundcube ticket from nine months ago and documented the problem, only to have it closed with a 'wontfix' three minutes later, and a claim that it is a known problem with suhosin;

https://github.com/stefanesser/suhosin/pull/26

As far as I understand the history on that there is a fix available for this, but it's apparently not included in the suhosin package from the Atomic reposity. Any chance of releasing an update that includes this?

Thanks for your time :-)

I am not sure I am reading it correctly, but I thought the first thing there was a reference to this;
https://github.com/blino/suhosin/commit ... eb553b55f5

Is that not it? Or already in the existing package?

Just like to add an upvote to the request of having two instances of PHP running on the machine if it were possible.

Why not make such a "php 5.4 alternative PHP for Plesk v11.rpm" part of Nucleus? It would add significant value, and encourage long-term subscriptions, and would not be that hard to do. Follow it up with a similar php 5.5 option soon.

You know you want to. It makes sound business sense.
