PHP 5.5 is dead

After PHP 5.4, and as announced, PHP version 5.5.38 was the last official release of PHP 5.5

Which means that since version 5.6.25 and version 7.0.10 have been released, some security vulnerabilities are not, and won't be, fixed by the PHP project.

To keep a secure installation, the upgrade to a maintained version is strongly recommended:

  • PHP 5.6 is in active support mode, and will be maintained until December 2018.
  • PHP 7.0 is in active support mode, and will be maintained until December 2018.
  • PHP 7.1 is in under development, in stabilization phase (Release Candidate) and should be released as stable quite soon.

Read :

However, given the very important number of downloads by the users of my repository (~20%)  the version is still available in  remi repository for Enterprise Linux (RHEL, CentOS...) and Fedora (Software Collections) and includes the latest security fix.

Warning : this is a best effort action, depending of my spare time, without any warranty, only to give users more time to migrate. This can only be temporary, and upgrade must be the priority.

Version 5.4.38-2 includes fix backported from 5.6.25.

Base packages (php)

Software Collections (php55)

PHP Tour 2016 Clermont-Ferrand

I've had the pleasure to participate to PHP Tour 2016 in Clermont-Ferrand (one of the most important PHP event in France).

I gave a talk about  "Forget mod_php". It is about this PHP installation method, the most documented, the simplest, but which have given a bad image about Apache HTTPD Server, and encourage user, needing performance, to migrate to nginx and its threaded mode and so with FPM. But, it is also possible to use Apache in thread mode, using the worker or event MPM, also with FPM.

This is the opportunity to show how simple it is to switch to Apache and FPM with some simple or advanced configurations:

  • switch from mod_php to php-fpm
  • various PHP version
  • load balancing

The slides: Clermont2016en.pdf

Joind event: Oublions mod_php

And, as each year, this new PHP Tour allows a lot of rich and valuable meetings with various PHP users and developers.

Soon, PHPForum 2016 in Paris.
