PHP support in Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Upstream is discussing EOL dates for PHP 5.3.
  • Can you verify that RHEL6 will support PHP 5.3.x for the entire lifespan of RHEL6?
  • Or is it possible that PHP 5.3.x will also become EOL for RHEL6?
  • Please suggest how and where I can get the PHP 5.3.25 or above to install using Yum in RHEL6?
