When I install php53 package on cloudlinux, I am unable to install everything that requires php:
[[email protected] ~]# yum install squirrelmail
---> Package squirrelmail.noarch 0:1.4.8-5.el5_4.10 set to be updated
--> Processing Dependency: php >= 4.0.4 for package: squirrelmail
--> Processing Dependency: php-mbstring for package: squirrelmail
--> Running transaction check
---> Package php.x86_64 0:5.1.6-27.el5_5.3 set to be updated
--> Processing Dependency: php-cli = 5.1.6-27.el5_5.3 for package: php
--> Processing Dependency: php-common = 5.1.6-27.el5_5.3 for package: php
php53-common-5.3.3-1.el5_6.1.x86_64 from installed has depsolving problems
--> php53-common conflicts with php-common
Error: php53-common conflicts with php-common
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

The solution is to add to php53 spec:
Provides: php = %{version}
And everything other like php-gd or php-mbstring.

In majority of cases we just repack RHEL RPMs. And that is the problem here. What you are describing is a know issue:
And there is a work around:;start=14

It is not pretty., but one reason RHEL never resolved it, because they would need to re-test all the packages that need php with php 5.3, and I guess they didn\'t got around to it yet.

But I think it\'s better for CL to pack such a dummy package and add it to some extras repository.
