Default Limiting PHP upgrade to only 5.3.

Hi,

Currently using ISPconfig 3 on CentOS 6.3.

PHP is 5.3 using REMI repository.

Recently while doing a yum update, yum is showing php to be upgraded to 5.4.

I am afraid php 5.4 might break my clients websites. Should I update to php 5.4?

Is there a way to configure yum's remi repository to only update php 5.3 and not upgrade to php 5.4?

Really need the advice. Please share your thoughts.

P.V.Anthony

If I were you, I wouldn't upgrade to 5.4 because some software (e.g. older TYPO3 versions, Joomla, etc.) don't work under 5.4 without problems.

When ISPConfig 3.0.5 is out, you can have multiple PHP versions on your server, so you could upgrade to 5.4 and compile 5.3 and then select 5.3 for the websites that don't work with 5.4.

Dear Falko,

Thank you very much for taking the time and replying. I also do appreciate the advice.

I agree and will take the advice about keeping to php 5.3.

Currently I am using REMI repository for the php packages. Is there a configuration that I can set in yum, so that yum will only update the php 5.3 series and not upgrade to php 5.4.

In other words, yum will always keep php at 5.3.

Is there any settings I can do?

It seems that REMI repository does not have the latest php 5.3.

The following repository seem to have the latest php 5.3 as well as 5.4.

http://www.webtatic.com/projects/yum-repository/

Has anyone used them before? Any comments about this repository?

Please share your thoughts.
