    I have to build a php module (phpredis to be exact) and it requires php53 and php53-devel. Is it safe to uncomment cPanel's php* entry in /etc/yum.conf to allow php53 to be installed at the system level? I've got root access.

    Hello,

    Since PHP is compiled in from source on a cpanel server, it is not recommend to install php using yup as it will cause issues later. Why don't you run EA3 and upgrade php to 5.3?

    Thank you,
    Nibin.

    We've already got cPanel's custom build of php 5.3, it's the extra packages (php-devel) that I need.

    Same thing with perl-Error so I can install git.

    I'm guessing that I can just disable the yum excludes for these packages, as they don't replace their base deps.
