Topic: php-5.3.6 requires mysql-5.5?

Apparently the php-mysql-5.3.6 package forces an upgrade of the mysql server to 5.5? Is this intentional?
This will probably make these packages unusable for quite a few people.

Re: php-5.3.6 requires mysql-5.5?

No, the php-mysql package requires client library of MySQL 5.5 which can installed with
- compat-mysql55 in remi-test for those who want to keep an old MySQL version
- mysql-libs in remi for those who want the latest MySQL version

Re: php-5.3.6 requires mysql-5.5?

Indeed after installing the compat-mysql55 package first the php update no longer pulls in the new mysql. Thanks!

Re: php-5.3.6 requires mysql-5.5?

Hi, how exactly do you install the compat-mysql55 package?


Using:

yum install --enablerepo=remi-test compat-mysql55

Tries to install mysql 5.5 as well. E.g.

So I will be ok to install that package from remi-test and the main php update from remi?

Re: php-5.3.6 requires mysql-5.5?

yes.

(perhaps you will have to exclude mysql* from remi repository)

Re: php-5.3.6 requires mysql-5.5?

Many thanks.

Works perfectly:

yum install --disablerepo=remi --enablerepo=remi-test compat-mysql55
yum update php

(no need to disable anything in php update)

Re: php-5.3.6 requires mysql-5.5?

I had same issues but needed to exclude mysql to achieve the php update without mysql conflicts.

Downloaded the rpm, then:
# rpm -Uvh remi-release-5*.rpm epel-release-5*.rpm

then:
# yum -enablerepo=remi update php

then:
# yum install --disablerepo=remi --enablerepo=remi-test compat-mysql55

then:
# yum --enablerepo=remi update php-pear php-pdo php-mysql php-gd php-mbstring php-mcrypt php-xml php-dom --exclude=mysql*

Thanks Remi !
