Since RHSCL 2.3 was released, RHEL users can install PHP 5.6 or PHP 7.0 without base système alteration, using the appropriate channel.

These packages are also available for CentOS users in the SCL repositories, managed by the SCLo SIG:

# yum --enablerepo=extras install centos-release-scl

So the CentOS project provides the infrastructure and hosting for 4 repositories:

  • centos-sclo-rh : same content than upstream RHSCL
  • centos-sclo-sclo : additional collections maintained by the community
  • centos-sclo-rh-testing : packages to be tested (RHSCL beta version)
  • centos-scl-sclo-testing : package to be tested, maintained by the community

RHSCL users wishing to use these additional packages can configure the centos-sclo-sclo repository by using the  centos-release-scl Copr repository:

# cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
# wget https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/rhscl/centos-release-scl/repo/epel-7/rhscl-centos-release-scl-epel-7.repo
# yum install centos-release-scl

If you are interested by these packages, I recommend to follow the sclorg@redhat.com mailing list where possible issues are discussed, and changes announced. Thanks for using this list for your feedback (testing packages) or any other request. New contributor are also welcome.

Information and documentation on https://www.softwarecollections.org/.

Development is tracked on sclorg-distgit.
