Latest updates, PHP, Git, Httpd, Nginx

here are updated packages in the Yum repository:

PHP 5.4.1 and PHP 5.3.11 fix a security issue in PHP 5.4.0 and <= 5.3.10, allowing bypassing of $_FILES key filtering, allowing unexpected manipulation of files. CVE-2012-1172

PHP 5.3.11 fixes a security issue in PHP 5.3.10 and lower, allowing environmental variables to disregard magic_quotes_gpc. CVE-2012-0831

Latest updates, CentOS/RHEL 6 repostory and PHP 5.4.0

Webtatic is happy to announce it will now be providing a repository for CentOS 6 and RHEL 6. As part of the first release, PHP 5.4.0 has also been released to the repository.

Due to the nature of providing a reliable, safe YUM repository, the new EL6 yum repository will follow recent trends in the structure and naming conventions of a 3rd-party repository, so it will be able to run along-side the distribution’s own repositories without interfering with installed packages.

This also means that it will now be easier to upgrade within Webtatic’s own update stream, as the repository will no longer be enable=0, and not require –enablerepo=webtatic in installation commands.

The packages provided as part of this release are:

Latest updates, PHP 5.3.6, MySQL 5.5.10

There are updated packages in the Yum repository:

What’s interesting is that PHP.net decided not to release the security fixes to PHP 5.2. The security flaws that were fixed may affect that release, which is end of life, so I recommend that you upgrade to PHP 5.3. PHP 5.3 has now been out for almost 2 years.

Now that PHP Pear 1.9.2 is in the repository, you should be able to install PHPUnit 3.5 without needing to manually upgrade Pear.

Yum repo updated, gpg signature key changed requiring action
