This update will require manual adjustments: * update your php.ini; see php.ini.pacsave as reference * module path is now /usr/lib/php/modules * session, mbstring and zlib are now built in * the fileinfo module is now built in and no longer a separate package * mysqlnd is anabled; so libmysqlclient is no longer needed * Setting default-character-set in my.cnf may cause encoding problems * Set date.timezone in php.ini * third party extensions need to be updated * There are also new versions of the suhosin and apc extension make sure to review their configuration as well PHP was split into the following packages: * php * php-apache * php-cgi * php-curl * php-enchant * php-gd * php-gmp * php-intl * php-ldap * php-mcrypt * php-odbc * php-pear * php-pgsql * php-pspell * php-snmp * php-sqlite * php-tidy * php-xsl If you are using php on a webserver you either need the cgi or apache sapi. The sqlite package includes the sqlite3 drivers; the legacy sqlite2 drive is included in the php package itself. (Distributions)
