Description Robert Scheck 2018-04-18 19:50:21 UTC
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):

How reproducible:
Always, see above.

Actual results:
Package php-fpm doesn't provide php(httpd).

Expected results:
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)

Comment 8 Robert Scheck 2018-12-10 10:48:51 UTC
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.

Comment 9 Joe Orton 2019-06-06 15:42:01 UTC
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.
