Topic: php-igbinary for RHEL 5

Hi,

First of all, really appreciate your effort! Not exactly sure who REMI is, but what you do is quite impressive. If at all possible, would you mind sharing the motivations behind this 'service' and how this repository came to be? smile

Back to main topic - would it be possible to get an RPM for php-igbinary to install on top of PHP 5.3.3 on RHEL 5?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Not exactly sure who REMI is

Mainly a old fedora/redhat user which have a passion for LAMP stuff wink

Yes....
I have let this in my TODO for a while... I'd like to enable this serializer, especially in php-pecl-memcached.
I have some pending works (new package)... but I will try to work on it, submit it for fedora official repository, and then backport it to EL in my repo.

Re: php-igbinary for RHEL 5

how this repository came to be?

This are mainly stuff I need and use in my professional activities.

This are various reasons to have a package included in my repository
- I need/use it
- I want to try it (MySQL 5.5.x)
- I work on it before it will go to official repository (p.e. php-fpm)
- Oracle stuff which can't be in official repository (php-oci8, tora, ...)
- Backport of the latest version available in fedora (firefox, php, ...)

Great, thanks for your replies!

Is there a way to subscribe to RPM package updates via e-mail so that as soon as php-igbinary is available for RHEL 5 one would get notified automatically?

Re: php-igbinary for RHEL 5

This is great, thanks a lot - will try the RPMs some time today and provide feedback when tested

Re: php-igbinary for RHEL 5

OK, as far as update process goes - everything went smooth

phpinfo() shows that:

- igbinary 1.0.2 [rev $Id: igbinary.c,v 1.33 2009/03/18 06:44:13 tricky Exp $] is available
- memcached now has igbinary support

i am yet to test whether binary serialisation works with memcached

Re: php-igbinary for RHEL 5

Just had a chance to test igbinary with memcached, works smoothly via:

$memcached->setOption(
    Memcached::OPT_SERIALIZER,
    (Memcached::HAVE_IGBINARY)
        ? Memcached::SERIALIZER_IGBINARY
        : Memcached::SERIALIZER_PHP
);

Can provide significant memory savings when used in conjunction with binary protocol, no benchmarks yet though...
