Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Tried this:

yum install php-soap


No package php-soap available.

Then tried this:

yum --enablerepo=centosplus install php-soap

Still same sh!t. Tried this:

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

Still no luck. Guys, where's the repo that contains the needed package?

The server is at vps.net btw...

what varsion of centos is it? Did you try yum search soap or yum search php-soap? what version of php are you using? –  B14D3 Dec 7 '11 at 22:26
yum repolist? ls /etc/yum.repos.d/? rpm -qa | grep php? –  quanta Dec 8 '11 at 10:07
Did you fix this yet? Same issue here, PHP 5.3.3 Centos 6 –  user174961 May 23 '13 at 10:12

firstly open /etc/yum.conf file. Find exclude line and erase php* command, then, save the file.

Then, 'yum install php-soap' command should work.

I have it in epel and rpmforge repos on CentOS 5. Did you try with --enablerepo:

yum --enablerepo=epel install php-soap

Still says No package php-soap available. It's unbelieveable! But appreciate your answer btw. –  Dmitry Dec 7 '11 at 22:18
