We will have el 7 until 2024 , more 6 years, can we update php to 5.6
on el 7 ? or PHP apps for epel have to move to remi repo ?
I am expecting they will need to move to the remi repo because php-5.4
is shipped in RHEL and we do not over-write those packages. In the
past RHEL would have shipped a php56 which would have done this, but I
expect that they instead are wanting people to use SCL's for this.
Which would require us to either ship the SCLs ourselves (as we can't
assume a person has that repo turned on) or we create a repository
which requires them so that people aren't broken.
There is another option where someone packages up the php56 rpms in
some way which could be shipped in EPEL, but I think that is a large
amount of work and I believe remi has pointed people to use scl's
