I recently had to build php 5.3.29 on a brand new Centos 7 Digital Ocean droplet.

Pretty simple process but I thought it would be a good idea to share my steps…

This will be a general simple to follow how-to on a brand new centos 7.x machine.

  1. Install the epel repo and rpm tools.

sudo yum -y install epel-release rpm-build rpmdevtools wget

  1. install the Centos development tools and libraries.

sudo yum -y groupinstall “Development Tools” “Server Platform Development” “Additional Development” “Compatibility libraries”

sudo yum -y install db4-devel pam-devel libedit-devel libtool-ltdl-devel libc-client-devel sqlite2-devel t1lib-devel libmcrypt-devel libtidy-devel freetds-devel aspell-devel recode-devel enchant-devel

  1. Setup the rpm build directory environment. 

cd ~

rpmdev-setuptree

  1. Download the Centos 6 src rpm and rebuild it.

This rpm is based on the php-5.3.23-1.el6.remi.src.rpm that I modified to include the latest version of php 5.3 (5.3.29) and also fixed any pathing issues between Centos 6 and Centos 7.

wget https://dev-zero.org/files/php-5.3.29-1.el7.src.rpm

rpmbuild –rebuild php-5.3.29-1.el7.src.rpm

When the process is done you will have your Centos 7 php 5.3.29 rpm’s.

All you have to do now is install them via yum.
