Need RPM package for PHP version 5.2.7 and up on redhat 5.1
 
I am looking to upgrade php from 5.2.5 to a more secure version like minimum 5.2.7 I am working on RedHat 5.1.

I have tried to look for RPM's on rpm.pbone.net and rpm.find.net and no luck.

I now a can donwload the source code from PHP but I am not sure if I can compile on linux redhat. I have compiled the source code for solaris
but not linux.

Does anyone now where I can get my hand on the RPM.
The Arch is i386, Redhat 5.1.

Thanks

A similar question was asked a short time ago, so I made
some build instructions ( for 5.3.0 ) here, post # 3
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...?highlight=php

It it very easy, just open the terminal and type 1) su
2 ) rpmbuild -bb /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/php.spec
... and wait .. to the packages are ready.
.....

And version 5.2.9 is here
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...2.fc11.src.rpm
.....

Just a little question regarding 5.2.9, can I use the fedora rpm for EL 5.1 (RedHat)

Thanks

RHEL5.X was based on FC6. There have been tons of changes between FC6 and F11. So while you might shoe horn it into your system it is likely not to function correctly. Rebuilding the RPM is the way to go.

knudfl 11-03-2009 02:14 PM

As lazlow says : Yes. The package shown is not an RPM package.

It is an SRC.RPM , no rpm , just source code.
' src.rpm ' just tells : "ready to build with rpmbuild
to get rpm packages"
Unpacking src.rpm's to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/ :
# rpm -i <package>src.rpm

And I actually did build the packages ( 5.3.0 ) on EL 5.

And no : you cannot use a Fedora binary rpm package on EL5,
only the Fedora SRC.RPM's, thus tailoring EL 5 packages.

Thanks for the feedback,

I was wondering what dependencies did you use with PHP 5.3 when it comes
to MySQL.

Thanks in advance.

' mysql-devel '
I just added it to the long dependency list in the reference thread, post # 3
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...?highlight=php
Code:

# yum install mysql-devel firebird-devel libicu-devel enchant-devel bzip2-devel curl-devel db4-devel gmp-devel httpd-devel pam-devel pcre-devel libc-client-devel cyrus-sasl-devel openldap-devel postgresql-devel unixODBC-devel libxml2-devel libxslt-devel libxml2-devel libXpm-devel libjpeg-devel libpng-devel freetype-devel t1lib-devel libmcrypt-devel mhash-devel libtidy-devel freetds-devel aspell-devel recode-devel
..... :) ..... Good luck .....

P.S. : You can read the "Build Requires" in the file ' php.spec '.

Nobody needs to build these packages as root account user: use an unprivileged account instead.

I would just let yum update the rhel 5.1 to rhel 5.4 and be done with it .

knudfl 11-08-2009 04:48 AM

@ unSpawn # 8 ... Sorry ...
.. I see that mentioned every week .. without a 'how to do it' ..
.. It's easy to describe : a 'one liner' file '.rpmmacros' will create the
rpm's to e.g. /home/'name'/rpms/ , using 'rpmbuild' as ordinary user :
The line is : %_topdir /home/<username>/rpms

The commands to get it done :
Code:

mkdir -p --verbose $HOME/rpms/{BUILD,RPMS,SOURCES,SPECS,SRPMS}
mkdir -p --verbose $HOME/rpms/RPMS/{athlon,i386,i486,i586,i686,noarch}
echo "%_topdir `echo $HOME/rpms`" > $HOME/.rpmmacros

And ' rpm -i <package.src.rpm> ' will then copy the source code tar ball to
/home/<username>/rpms/SOURCES , and the <file>.spec to
/home/<username>/rpms/SPECS.

NP about the unpriv. As far as HOWTO's go I used to point to docs like IBM DeveloperWorks (as seen here), but they're probably getting old now and I know Fedora has way more up to date docs and rules. I'd add some sane defaults to ~/.rpmmacros following your example (notice: tmp under rpms/):
Code:

%_topdir        $HOME/rpms
%_builddir      %{_topdir}/BUILD
%_rpmdir        %{_topdir}/RPMS
%_sourcedir    %{_topdir}/SOURCES
%_specdir      %{_topdir}/SPECS
%_srcrpmdir    %{_topdir}/SRPMS
%_tmppath      %{_topdir}/tmp

One could add an ~/.rpmrc for tweaking build flags.

Thanks all for you feedback.

I have decided to migrate the systems from this env (Virtuozzo with EL5)
Moving them to ESX hosts. I have already setup my repository for upgrades of PHP, MySQL...
I am going to usr YUM to do upgrades.

knudfl 11-17-2009 10:30 AM

# 11, @ unSpawn : Thank you ..

Seems, this simplified explanation does the job :
Code:

mkdir -p --verbose $HOME/rpms/{BUILD,RPMS,SOURCES,SPECS,SRPMS,tmp} &&
mkdir -p --verbose $HOME/rpms/RPMS/{athlon,i386,i486,i586,i686,noarch}

+ this file ... ' ~.rpmmacros ' :
Code:

%_topdir    /home/<username>/rpms

%_tmppath    %{_topdir}/tmp
