Upgrading to PHP 7

Post by Wstar » 2016/04/07 15:02:08

I'm having an issue installing PHP 7.
On CentOS6.7 and using PHP 5.5 currently.

I have following some posts on here using these two pages:
http://blog.remirepo.net/post/2016/02/1 ... HEL-Fedora
http://rpms.remirepo.net/wizard/

The first thing I try is to get the Repositories:

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-6.noarch.rpm
wget http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
rpm -Uvh remi-release-6.rpm epel-release-latest-6.noarch.rpm
My next step is to run:

Code: Select all

yum-config-manager --enable remi-php70
Which I get these results:

Code: Select all

[remi-php70]
bandwidth = 0
base_persistdir = /var/lib/yum/repos/x86_64/6
baseurl =
cache = 0
cachedir = /var/cache/yum/x86_64/6/remi-php70
cost = 1000
enabled = True
enablegroups = True
exclude =
failovermethod = priority
gpgcadir = /var/lib/yum/repos/x86_64/6/remi-php70/gpgcadir
gpgcakey =
gpgcheck = True
gpgdir = /var/lib/yum/repos/x86_64/6/remi-php70/gpgdir
gpgkey = file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-remi
hdrdir = /var/cache/yum/x86_64/6/remi-php70/headers
http_caching = all
includepkgs =
keepalive = True
mdpolicy = group:primary
mediaid =
metadata_expire = 21600
metalink =
mirrorlist = http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/6/php70/mirror
mirrorlist_expire = 86400
name = Remi's PHP 7.0 RPM repository for Enterprise Linux 6 - x86_64
old_base_cache_dir =
password =
persistdir = /var/lib/yum/repos/x86_64/6/remi-php70
pkgdir = /var/cache/yum/x86_64/6/remi-php70/packages
proxy = False
proxy_dict =
proxy_password =
proxy_username =
repo_gpgcheck = False

Next I run:

Code: Select all

yum update
And get:

Code: Select all

remi-php70 
No Packages marked for Update
Says I'm still on php 5.5 when I run:

Code: Select all

php --v
I have tried restarting and no luck. Am I missing something?

Please paste full yum output.

Is the yum-plugin-priorities enabled ? (if yes, try to disable it)

Code: Select all

yum --noplugins update
P.S. usually better to ask 3rdparty repository question directly to the right place => http://forum.remirepo.net/

Re: Upgrading to PHP 7

Post by remirepo » 2016/04/07 16:18:06

How php was installed ?

Code: Select all

$ which php
$ rpm -qf $(which php)

P.S. don't enable both "remi-php70" and "webtatic", this may create some conflicts

PHP 5.5 was installed VIA EasyApaphe. But has no option for PHP 7 yet.
root@x6gn-rc5v [~]# which php
/usr/local/bin/php
root@x6gn-rc5v [~]# rpm -qf $(which php)
file /usr/local/bin/php is not owned by any package
root@x6gn-rc5v [~]#
I will try to only enable one.

So installed from sources.
Of course yum cannot update it.

You have to clean this installation, and then "install" PHP 7 packages

Code: Select all

yum install php php-cli php-mbstring ...

You don't have to wait until CentOS 8.

I was able to upgrade to PHP7 from the tutorial at: https://stackengineer.com/linux/upgrade-php-centos.html

Pretty straight forward:

Code: Select all

sudo rpm -Uvh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-9.noarch.rpm
sudo rpm -Uvh https://mirror.webtatic.com/yum/el7/webtatic-release.rpm
sudo yum remove php*
sudo yum install mod_php71w
php -v

While this may technically work, you won't find anyone here recommending use of the webtatic repo. Use the IUS Community repo for replacement php packages or use SCL for parallel installable and runnable php versions.

THis presumes, like many tutorials, that the whole world runs Apache. I'm on Nginx with FPM. Can I upgrade with the same instructions, and have my usual php-fpm config etc intact? Or will I have to undo/redo all the time in the future? Thank you for any pointers.
