Description of problem:
Given bug #1215429 was only solved half (package php provides php(httpd),
but package php-fpm doesn't provide it as well), this is the request to
have a common provide at both, php and php-fpm that could be used e.g. by
packages like phpMyAdmin which could work with mod_php or php-fpm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, see above.
Package php-fpm doesn't provide php(httpd).
Package php-fpm should provide php(httpd).

> Package php-fpm should provide php(httpd).
only mod_php (php package) provides a working configuration.
php-fpm does NOT (this was explained in the original bug report)
Right. And according to bug #1215429 comment #4, I would like to see the needed rest as well in RHEL 7. Given that php-fpm will be preferred in RHEL 8, it's IMHO even a good argument to introduce such a switch in RHEL 7.
As Remi explained in bug 1215429, Provides: php(httpd) is intended to indicate the package provides working PHP in the default configuration.
We do provide that in php-fpm in RHEL8 (which is supported).
We don't provide that via php-fpm in RHEL7, which is an unsupported package in the optional channel. https://access.redhat.com/solutions/62331
We don't have any plans to change this in RHEL7, sorry Robert.
