Topic: Hunting for Fedora 28 port of PHP 5.6

Hi Remi,

I'm hunting for a Fedora 28 repo for PHP 5.6 (I know, it's EOL).  Our software is still stuck in legacy hell, and while we're looking to eventually port, we're still trapped in 5.6

I ended up with a shiney new machine, but still haven't had any luck finding a repo for 5.6 for Fedora 28

Can you help?

Hunting down these specific packages:

php
php-bcmath
php-channel-swift
php-cli
php-common
php-devel
php-gd
php-geshi
php-ldap
php-mbstring
php-mcrypt
php-mysqlnd
php-pdo
php-pear
php-pecl-jsonc
php-pecl-jsonc-devel
php-pecl-xdebug
php-pecl-zip
php-pgsql
php-process
php-soap
php-swift-Swift
php-xml

Thanks!

See the Wizard.

PHP 5.6 is only available as Software Collections
(I only provide newer version than default one as base packages, so 7.2 and 7.3)

Using a SCL is quite simple, especially as Fedora use FPM by default

* stop the php-fpm service
* start the php56-php-fpm service  (ensure apache use the right socket)

Notice: PHP 5.6 vanilla is not compatible with recent OpenSSL 1.1 in Fedora, so my packages includes a huge backport from PHP 7 to make it compatible.

Desktop: Fedora 29 x86_64 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev
Laptop:  Fedora 28 x86_64 + rpmfusion + remi (SCL only)
Hosting Server: CentOS 6.10 x86_64 with EPEL, remi, remi-php72 and remi-php72-test
