Topic: Switch back from Remi's 7.4 to Fedora 34 default

Hello,

For years I have been using Remi's PHP on my Fedora. As Fedora 34 is said to provide php 8 I decided to simplify maintenance and switch back to Fedora's default php. I've succeeded with this a few months ago on a two other computers, but this time I have forgotten something and possibly messed a bit.

How to do this properly?

I've tried:
1)

# dnf module reset php
# dnf config-manager --disable remi remi-modular
# dnf update php\*

Nothing to be done.

2)

# dnf module reset php
# dnf config-manager --enable remi remi-modular
# dnf module disable php:remi-7.4

Only module name is required. Ignoring not needed information in the parameter: "php:remi-7.4"

It informed that php module was turned off.

# dnf update php\*

3)

# dnf module reset php
# dnf module switch-to php:8.0

Error: Issues in request: missing groups or modules: php:8.0.

Currently installed Remi packages:

# dnf list installed | grep @remi*

Re: Switch back from Remi's 7.4 to Fedora 34 default

> As Fedora 34 is said to provide php 8

No Fedora 34 have 7.4.28

Only Fedora 35 have 8.0 (Fedora 36/37 have 8.1, Fedora 38 will have 8.2)

As Fedora 34 reached its End of Life a few months ago, I recommend you upgrade to a supported version


> # dnf module switch-to php:8.0

Need to be php:remi-8.0  (see "dnf module list php")

> # dnf update php\*

To switch back to system old version you need to "downgrade"

Desktop: Fedora 35 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev
Laptop:  Fedora 36 + rpmfusion + remi (SCL only)
Hosting Server: CentOS 8 Stream with EPEL, rpmfusion, remi

Re: Switch back from Remi's 7.4 to Fedora 34 default

Thank you Remi for reply.

Following you advice I tried to downgrade, but was informed that, there are no older version, than mine.
So I have upgraded Fedora to 36 and once again tried as in point 1 and 3 of my initial post.
Only to find out it is not the right way.

Among problems issued by

dnf update php\*

are multiple errors
cannot install both php*.fc36 and php-*fc36.remi.
So apparently I haven't switched from Remi's modules to system default.

I guess that my syntax of

dnf module switch-to php:8.1

is also wrong as I get only
missing groups or modules: php:8.1

How should I proceed to do this properly?

Re: Switch back from Remi's 7.4 to Fedora 34 default

I don't understand your goal, and your tries.

> dnf module switch-to php:8.1

Again this is not the right name, again see "dnf module list php"

> are multiple errors

Sorry I don't have any cristal ball.


In short:
- If you want to use default stock package, simply don't use my repo
- if you need alternative versions or more extensions, simply follow the
wizard instructions (top/right link on all pages of the blog / repo / forum)
to get a proper configuration / installation

Re: Switch back from Remi's 7.4 to Fedora 34 default

Sorry for being unclear and puzzling you.

Please put my tries aside. They are wrong as I guess I messed up more, than get closer to my goal.
Lets focus on my goal. And it is switching from php from your repo to php from Fedora's repo. Currently I use php from your repo, remi-7.4 stream, common profile. I would like to switch to Fedora 36 default stock package.

At the moment "dnf module list php" lists: remi-7.4, remi-8.0, remi-8.1 and remi-8.2 with common profile being default one.
No php modules from the Fedora repo get listed.

I guess I should switch to a stream provided by Fedora, shouldn't I?
I can recall that indeed it was simple thing to switch, but lost my way.

Re: Switch back from Remi's 7.4 to Fedora 34 default

1/ disable any php stream enabled from my repo

dnf module reset php

or even remove "remi-release" package

2/ sync installation with enabled repo

dnf distro-sync

Desktop: Fedora 35 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev
Laptop:  Fedora 36 + rpmfusion + remi (SCL only)
Hosting Server: CentOS 8 Stream with EPEL, rpmfusion, remi

Re: Switch back from Remi's 7.4 to Fedora 34 default

Thank you Remi.

I wasn't forced to remove "remi-release" package.
The only thing was php-imap was missing from among the stock packages. But as it seemed not to dependency for any other installed package I simply removed it.
