PHP 5.6 will stop getting security updates in January 2019. Consider upgrading to PHP 7 now

PLEASE READ : For those who are getting "unknown public key" errors, this is NOT caused by this package. It means GPG is not configured to fetch public keys automatically (which is normal by default)

Please read the instructions at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Makepkg#Signature_checking

The easiest way to overcome this is to manually import the keys from a keyserver :

$ gpg --keyserver hkp://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 --recv-keys C2BF0BC433CFC8B3 FE857D9A90D90EC1

foxxx and I have been working together and this package can now be installed along PHP 7 from the official repos.

Everything has been moved into separate directories :

Config : /etc/php56
Extensions : /usr/lib/php56/modules
Binaries : /usr/bin/php56, /usr/bin/php56-cgi, /usr/bin/phar56, etc.

If you were previously using this as a replacement for php7, you'll have to adjust the new configuration files in /etc/php56/ to reflect the current ones in /etc/php/.

Apache module (provided by php56-apache) also has a specific configuration and CAN NOT cohabit with php7_module. Use php-fpm, fcgi or cgi if you need both versions.

The apache module is installed as libphp56.so, so you should use the following lines your httpd.conf :

# Load php 5.6 module
LoadModule php5_module modules/libphp56.so

# Use it for .php extensions
Include conf/extra/php56_module.conf

Please let me know if you encounter any problem or have a suggestion.

Updated to PHP 5.6.27:

"The PHP development team announces the immediate availability of PHP 5.6.27.
Several security related issues were fixed in this release. All
PHP 5.6 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version."

@mickael9: Could you remove the php-5.6.26.tar.xz.asc? I can't see the point, why I should manually import such a key. Isn't it enough to check the MD5sum (or better the sha256sum) of the source files?

@p-we What do you mean? The shipped /etc/php56/php.ini already has extension_dir = "/usr/lib/php56/modules/"

p-we commented on 2016-08-20 03:01

Although as mickael9 states: "Everything has been moved into separate directories"
/etc/php56/php.ini has to be changed to match the correct extension directory

Line 734: extension_dir = "/usr/lib/php56/modules/"

@firegore Thanks. As it turns out, libvpx is not actually used. It should build without it now.

firegore commented on 2016-08-16 16:27

i couldnt build the package

it couldnt find the libvpx.so File

installing libvpx fixed it, maybe add it to depedencies?

@lmat This is a split package for php56 and php56-* hence all comments in either packages end up in the same place.

Apache module is in the php56-apache package and installs as /usr/lib/httpd/modules/libphp56.so

Which means you want this in your httpd.conf:
LoadModule php5_module modules/libphp56.so
Include conf/extra/php56_module.conf

lmat commented on 2016-08-06 13:21

It looks like this is exactly the same as php56 (aur). Did the maintainer accidentally upload php56 here instead of php56-apache? (I'm using Download Snapshot.)

I see my comment on php56-apache would up here. Either this problem is deeper than I thought, or I'm misunderstanding.

I installed the php56 (aur), but libphp5.so isn't in the apache modules directory. I found it in /usr/lib, but when I put /usr/lib/libphp5.so in my httpd.conf, I get
/usr/lib/libphp5.so: undefined symbol: php5_module
