Summary0017900: CentOS 7 with SCL enabled only provides PHP 7.3.11
DescriptionHi Everyone,

My apologies for this report.

We have a CentOS 7 VM with Red Hat's SCL enabled. It runs our website and wiki at SCL is enabled so we can get an updated Apache, Python, PHP and friends.

Our current Mediawiki is 1.34. 1.34 is _not_ a Long Term Support (LTS) release. We have to migrate to Mediawiki 1.35. 1.35 is a LTS release. Mediawiki is 1.34 is now End of Life.

We cannot migrate to Mediawiki 1.35 at the moment because CentOS 7 and SCL only provides PHP 7.3.11. Mediawiki 1.35 requires PHP 7.3.19.

Also see and It asks Mediawiki to downgrade their PHP requirements.
Steps To Reproduce1. Enable SCL
2. Install php73
3. Enable PHP 7.3 in /etc/profile.d

# cat /etc/profile.d/
#!/usr/bin/env bash
source scl_source enable rh-php73
Additional InformationThe issue was previously reported and marked as fixed in I could not add a comment to the 17826 report, so I opened another report. My apologies for that.

Unfortunately, on a fully updated CentOS 7 machine with PHP 7.3 installed:

$ php --version
PHP 7.3.11 (cli) (built: Dec 10 2019 16:14:50) ( NTS )
Copyright (c) 1997-2018 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v3.3.11, Copyright (c) 1998-2018 Zend Technologies

The reason for the second bug report is, Mediawiki 1.34 is now End of Life. We have to upgrade to Mediawiki 1.35. Also see "MediaWiki 1.34 is End of Life",


I'd like to provide the SCL version being provided by CentOS 7, but I am not sure how to do it. I don't know if this helps or not.
