PHP 5.2.3 Packages Updated

June 19, 2007 by · 38 Comments 

I've updated the PHP 5.2.3 packages to fix a bug I introduced for the 'php-cgi' binary (in that it wasn't actually a CGI/FastCGI file, oops...) by not reading the changelog closely enough.

If you use FastCGI (please tell me no one is still using CGI) then this update is a must for you. If you don't, don't worry about it.

Upgrading to MySQL 5.0.42 on RHEL and CentOS

The source package for the Enterprise release of MySQL 5.0.42 has been available on their FTP for quite some time now. Unfortunately, they left the release notes page at "Not yet released" until just recently so I've been kind of hesitant to actually build and release binary packages. That said, the release notes have been updated (to show a release date of 3 weeks ago) and I'm now making that version available to all those without an Enterprise subscription.

To the users of my repository, you know what to do. If you aren't an existing user, you can either click the "Yum Repository" link at the top of the page, or download the src.rpm at the bottom of this post and rebuild the binaries yourself. If you choose the latter, remember that MySQL cannot be built as 'root'.

Upgrading to PHP 5.2.3 on RHEL and CentOS

June 1, 2007 by · 56 Comments 

PHP 5.2.3 has been released. This version does not have the massive number of bug fixes that came with 5.2.2 (which included many of the patches from the Month of PHP Bugs), but it does have some useful fixes included, including the fix for the HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA bug that was introduced in PHP 5.2.2.

This build was relatively straight forward and didn't require any modifications to the spec file from my build of 5.2.2. I'll probably do a respin when MySQL 5.0.42 is finally marked as "released" (the source package is already available but the changelog hasn't been updated with an official release date).
