Everyone knows that CentOS only takes care of some specific core packages. All others, if you want to continue using RPM's, must be used from alternative Repositories. There are many alternatives:

  • EPEL: you will find here many useful packages. Packages get updates for critical bugs.
  • Remi: you will find here backports for the most useful packages. 
  • OKay: you will find here some specific packages for servers, audio, and video.

I especially do contributions to the OKay repository. So, if you want to use OKay follow these steps:

  • Install the EPEL repository, you may try typing yum install epel-release. I think at least Centos 7 and 8 have it out of the box.
  • Install the okay-release RPM. Type:
    • Centos 6 on 32 bits: rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/6/i386/release/okay-release-1-3.el6.noarch.rpm​?
    • Centos 6 on 64 bits: rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/6/x86_64/release/okay-release-1-3.el6.noarch.rpm?
    • Centos 7 on 64 bits: rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/7/x86_64/release/okay-release-1-3.el7.noarch.rpm?
    • Centos 8 on 64 bits: rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/8/x86_64/release/okay-release-1-3.el8.noarch.rpm?

I will post later as I publish some updates or packages.

Soon I will stop updating the CentOS 6 repository.

So, as I am doing a very cool service I got into the dilemma of finding a user management system. It doesn't make sense to write all again if there are projects such as Joomla that does that very well. So my problem was reduced from coding a user management system to authenticating against Joomla.

After browsing I read several scripts that inspired me to write the one I need: https://bitbucket.org/daniel-lucio/external-joomla-http-authentication/src/master/

Under ISPConfig 3 you can have more than one PHP release available for your websites. Not every project runs perfectly in all versions, there is still out there some software that needs PHP 5.

I will show how easy is to add new PHP versions. This example installs PHP 7.2. UPDATE: PHP 7.3 and 7.4 RPM's are out, the same process applies to them.
