Fedora Update Notification

Name        : php
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 5.5.4
Release     : 1.fc20
URL         : http://www.php.net/
Summary     : PHP scripting language for creating dynamic web sites
Description :
PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. PHP attempts to make it
easy for developers to write dynamically generated web pages. PHP also
offers built-in database integration for several commercial and
non-commercial database management systems, so writing a
database-enabled webpage with PHP is fairly simple. The most common
use of PHP coding is probably as a replacement for CGI scripts.

The php package contains the module (often referred to as mod_php)
which adds support for the PHP language to Apache HTTP Server.

Update Information:

Packaging change:
- soap.wsdl_cache_dir is now set to "/var/lib/php/wsdlcache" for mod_php (apache) and php-fpm instead of default value (/tmp)
