Atomic PHP Packages Question

Unread post by Imaging »

Scott/Mike:

Since PHP 5.4.x will be EOLed a bit later this year, is there a timetable for when the main atomic repo php packages will transtiion to another version? Will the main packages go to 5.5 or 5.6 (perhaps 5.6 might be more prudent at this point)?

Thanks.

Atomic is going to go to 5.5/ when 5.4 is EOL'd. Then we'll maintain 5.4 with backports in nucleus.

A new repo will be available soon, called Quantum. This will have more of a cutting edge focus, with PHP 5.6 and Mariadb 10.x that will obsolete mysql packages. Other candidates for quantum are packages like nginx 1.7, redis 3.0, etc.

Wherever possible though, we'll have SCL packages like PHP Panda in the atomic repo. Internally art-build (the build system we have here) is already set up to SCL build existing packages.

Thanks for the response.

One question in relation to the PHP Panda packages.

If one wanted to use one of the atomic-* php versions as the main version, say 5.6 for example, what would be the best way to set it up? For Apache, appears that one would just need to point to the libphp5 modules under the /opt/atomic path.

For the commandline version of php, what would be the best method (path, symlinks, etc.)?

Thanks.

I havent actually used them that way myself, I did run across this article about it:

https://access.redhat.com/documentation ... ons_Guide/

I believe the idea is more like the alternatives system, where you can set this to adjust the paths globally or per-user.

Thanks, will check that article out.

On a related note, is there an ETA for Quantum? Will it be accessible with a nucleus subscription or will it be a separate subscription?

The plan is to have at least PHP 5.6 in quantum by the end of the month. Hopefully mariadb 10 will get in there around the same time

Thanks.

Will nucleus subscriptions have access to quantum or will it be a separate subscription?

Quantum will be a separate repo called: [quantum], we havent decided if it will be a paid repo or not. I'm leaning toward making it a public channel like atomic myself.
