Why Redhat Linux has no RPM for PHP 5?!

RC
The Subject says its all.
We can only get RPM PHP 4, but can't find PHP 5.

No it doesn't, you are missing the version of RH you are running?

Because RH doesn't currently support PHP 5.

Pretty easy to build apache and php, if you wish. I don't use the RH
RPM's for either. Get the source from the sites and away you go...

If you want software from the past 2 years, you cannot use RedHat.

Are you tell me Redhat is 2 years behind? Then they better change their
hat to other color.
I thought PHP 5 has been out there for some while.

They need not be at the bleeding edge. The Red Hat Enterprise distributions
are meant to be stable ones, not the latest and greatest. Red Hat updates
are only for security and bug fixes, not enhancements. They support their
releases for 7 years.

The way to get newer versions is to go from, e.g., RHEL 3 to RHEL 4 to RHEL
5 (coming later this year). The versions come out only about every 18
months. These systems are for those users who do not want to be pioneers,
but to have really solid reliable systems with minimum changes. If you want
the latest and greatest, you do not want Red Hat Enterprise systems, but
something else.
