emblem-important-4-24.pngAttention : this is a development preview, for test, not for production use.

Changes in the packages :

  • The new php-dbg packages provides the interactive debugger
  • Each configuration file (/etc/php.d) have a numerical prefix, to ensure correct load order.


yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-php56 update php\*

This new version is one of the Fedora 21 approved changes, see PHP 5.6

PHP 5.6.0RC1 is also already available in Fedora rawhide.


Running this development version for months, I haven't encountered any big issue with the web applications I use or with the test suites I run during packages build.

Most of the extensions are also available.
