CentOS 7 Sentora 1.0.3 PHP5.6 Upgrade Script

Since Sentora is still stuck on an old version of PHP, this script will update the system to the newer v5.6, via the Remi repository, as most things are deprecating support for older PHP versions at this point. Suhosin will also be recompiled for the new PHP version.


echo "Upgrading PHP to version 5.6. Please Wait..." 

sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-7*.rpm

yum update

yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-php56 update
yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-php56 upgrade

echo "Recompiling Suhosin for PHP 5.7..."

cd /tmp
wget -nv -O
unzip -q
rm -f
cd suhosin-suhosin-0.9.37
phpize &> /dev/null
./configure &> /dev/null
make &> /dev/null
make install
cd ..
rm -rf suhosin-suhosin-0.9.37

echo "Restarting Web Server Services..."

systemctl restart httpd

The Remi repo will give some package authentication warnings, these can be safely dismissed during the install. I’ve tested this on a fresh install of Sentora under CentOS 7, however this process isn’t without risk! Your PHP install could be damaged!
