I've a centos based installation with php-56 installed from this repository. It looks like this site is down.

Any idea where can I find a mirror or replacement ?

it looks like instead of looking for another mirrors yum just keep hitting the same site again and again:

https://www.softwarecollections.org/repos/remi/php56more/epel-7-x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 12] Timeout on https://www.softwarecollections.org/repos/remi/php56more/epel-7-x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: (28, 'Connection timed out after 30000 milliseconds') Trying other mirror. https://www.softwarecollections.org/repos/remi/php56more/epel-7-x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 12] Timeout on https://www.softwarecollections.org/repos/remi/php56more/epel-7-x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: (28, 'Connection timed out after 30001 milliseconds') Trying other mirror.

  • looks like you using the remi reository rpms.remirepo.net – Petter H May 19 '17 at 7:31
  • yes but softwarecollection site is down. I see I got remi installed as well, but it doesn't find the file I need there (gmp) – Dani May 19 '17 at 10:07
  • actually I see now that remi-php56more-epel-7-x86_64.repo also points to : softwarecollections.org/repos/remi/php56more/epel-7-x86_64 – Dani May 19 '17 at 10:12
  • Notice: php56more is now deprecated and will not receive any updates, you should use centos-sclo-sclo instead, see blog.remirepo.net/post/2017/02/23/… – Remi Collet May 23 '17 at 4:05
  • Thanks, my goal is to run away from php5.6 anyway. the code base is too big to do it right now :-) – Dani May 23 '17 at 8:45

You should be able to install Software Collections directly from an official CentOS repo. To enable that repo, run:

yum install centos-release-scl

See the CentOS SCL wiki page for details. The repo itself is at http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/sclo/.

  • It might had worked, but the site returned... so all is good now. – Dani May 21 '17 at 8:04
