Description Bill McGonigle 2012-09-06 20:15:13 UTC
Cloning bug 720429 as it's related....

I find myself using the php53 packages on EL5 machines in the field, and to make wordpress work easily there I've created packages locally:


so the requires work out.  Being that EPEL5 has another 5 years or so in it, probably staying with WP 3.1.x for the length of it is going to be tricky.  I assume from the below that keeping the 'wordpress' package on this branch is for the purposes of maintaining compatibility with the default php package, but since we have 5.3 shipping as well, does it now make sense to also ship a wordpress53 package in EPEL5 and track their releases, at least until such a point as Wordpress requires a PHP > 5.3? (seems like that would be a while, perhaps 5 years).

I can package up 3.4.1 for EL5 and post the SPEC patches for the above (minimal) if somebody tells me it's an acceptable approach for EPEL5.

Description of problem:
 PHP 5.2.4 or greater (old requirement - since WordPress 2.5 was PHP 4.3 or greater) 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Wordpress will stay on 3.1 line in EPEL-5.

Test src.rpm is at http://mcepl.fedorapeople.org/tmp/wordpress-3.4.2-3.el5.src.rpm, but it requires packages not yet present in EPEL-5.

Comment 4 Bill McGonigle 2012-12-13 06:26:21 UTC
The el5 machine I have my own 'wordpress53' build on is on a code freeze until after the holidays, so I can't test at the moment, but just a couple notes based on perusing the spec:

1) are we 'forcing' existing el5 'wordpress' package users to pull in php53 packages when this update comes in?  I can see some potential compatibility issues if that happens.
2) I notice the IDNA dependency is gone.  Grepped the wordpress tree for 'IDNA' and came up blank.  Seems like a good development.

Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2012-12-29 19:30:45 UTC
wordpress-3.5-1.el5 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 5 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

I started getting YUM updates on EPEL with the wordpress 3.1 -> 3.5.1 upgrade.

It was yelling about php53-simplepie which is apparently not yet in the repo?

wordpress-3.5-1.el5.noarch from epel has depsolving problems
  --> Missing Dependency: php53-simplepie is needed by package wordpress-3.5-1.el5.noarch (epel)
Error: Missing Dependency: php53-simplepie is needed by package wordpress-3.5-1.el5.noarch (epel)
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Now I'm trying to either find php53-simplepie or figure out how to get back to wordpress-3.1 and tell YUM not to update that yet.

Please advise.

Can php and php53 co-exist?
