I’ve posted some new packages for php 5.4 in the TechRockDo yum repository.  I originally had uploaded some under the php package name.  To avoid confusion with doing an update from 5.3 straight to 5.4, I’ve since renamed them as php54.  The original packages can be found under the deprecated tree of the repository.

Repoview packages for the various RHEL versions and architectures are listed below:

The TechRockDo yum repository has been created as a place to hold all rpm’s that I roll and use.  I’m making them available to the public; I hope you find everything you find here useful.  For now, only CentOS and RHEL 6 are supported.  There are channels for both 32- and 64-bit architectures.  To use the repository, just install the trd-release package for your architecture:

This will install the yum repository definition and the GPG key.  After that, you’ll be able to use the repository just like any other.

Enjoy!

A new TLF yum repository has been created for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6-based distributions (ie CentOS 6).  As of right now, there is only a 64-bit repo.  32-bit packages are forthcoming.  php 5.3.6 packages are available here by running the following set of commands:

There are several php packages available and the above yum command is only an example if you wanted to install php, the cli, and the mysql and mbstring extensions. The extensions you need will be based upon your usage.

The Linux Fix yum repository has been updated with new rpm’s for the tlf-release package and for php version 5.3.6.  The new tlf-release package includes changes to the layout of the yum repository, including splitting off a separate 32-bit and 64-bit repo.  You can read the release notes for php 5.3.6 here.

You may install or update the TLF repository with the following command:

Note that this command will work on 64-bit architectures as well.  I also need to repeat the disclaimer that using any of the database extensions for this version of php will also update sqlite to version 3.6.20, which replaces some pretty core functionality of RHEL and CentOS, so please use them at your own risk.
