PHP 5.5 on CentOS/RHEL 7.2, 6.8 and 5.11 via Yum

Webtatic has now ended support for PHP 5.5, and suggests either:

  • Upgrade RHEL/CentOS to 7.2, so that you can install php 5.4.16, which is still supported by those distributions.
  • Upgrade PHP to the one of the latest available versions, which Webtatic supplies PHP 5.6 for EL6/EL7 and PHP 7.0 for EL6/EL7
