Latest updates, PHP 5.3.6, MySQL 5.5.10

There are updated packages in the Yum repository:

What’s interesting is that 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

Important: the Yum repository has been updated with new signatures, requiring you to add the new key to your system in order for new packages to be validated successfully.

To do this, run the following command:

rpm -Uvh

With the latest update, the repository has been brought back to 100% status, including:

Rebuilds of the following:

  • php 5.2.17 / php 5.3.5
  • php-pecl-apc 3.1.6
  • gearmand 0.14
  • libmysqlclient15 5.0.77

Along with the following updates:

  • mysql51 version 5.1.55
  • mysql55 version 5.5.9
  • git is back, now on Rackspace Cloud

Due to’s previous hosting provider disappearing, the website has now moved to Rackspace Cloud, as I know its important to have the repository available at all times.

The restoration of the website gave me some time to reorganise it to fit a more ideal structure, so now the website will no longer be a blog, but structured into standard pages, with this news section being used to inform of updates to the site or packages.

If there have been any concerns over the availability of the repository, I hope that the move to Rackspace should ease them.

At the moment, the repository is running on a December backup, which is missing the PHP 5.3.5 update, git update, gearman and the mysql 5.1/5.5 packages. I hope to rectify this soon.

I may have to issue a new GPG key to sign RPM packages with, as I’m currently missing the existing one. I’ll post an update if that is done.
