Update wordpress dependencies

Reported by: EnekoGotzon Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.3.2
Keywords: Cc: Schamschula (Marius Schamschula), diochnos, nerdling (Jeremy Lavergne), ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt), dinesh6828
Port: wordpress


The wordpress port still depends on obsolete php5-* ports. It should be updated to use newer phpXY-ports instead.

Trying to install wordpress port constantly fails:

  • Dependencies to be installed: php5-gd php5-mysql php5-web php5 php5-zip
  • Configuring php5-gd always produces this error: php5-gd has been made obsolete by the port php53-gd. Please install php53-gd instead.
  • php53-gd is successfully installed.

OS X Yosemite / Xcode 6.1

Ports cleaning done

I was wondering what the status is on WordPress given that there was also a security release (4.0.1: on November 20th. Long story short, I am responsible for having an up-to-date installation of WordPress on a specific machine (even though I am not responsible for maintaining the content) and I have an imminent deadline on upgrading WordPress to a release that deals with the recent vulnerability issue. Thus, my question could also be: if I update the entire system (Mavericks/MacPorts-2.3.1 to Yosemite/MacPorts-2.3.3) but without installing WordPress through MacPorts, would it be reasonable to expect that an ad-hoc installation of WordPress (by using the 4.0.1 release available from the WordPress website) would work smoothly with Apache/PHP that will be installed through MacPorts? Has anyone tried this? I have postponed for quite some time upgrading this machine to Yosemite because I have been waiting for this issue to be resolved. However, I have no more time waiting. Any idea pointing me to the right direction would be appreciated.

Thank you, Dimitris

Adding ryan for PHP guidance.

php5-web is broken: should it be removed entirely, or should we depend on php-fpm?

Similarly, which version of PHP should be used?

php5-web should be replaced by php53-web when available; see #45008.

Likely, wordpress should have variants for each possible version of php, like phpmyadmin does.

diochnos, ports don't get updated unless someone volunteers to do so, and nobody has volunteered to do this for the wordpress port. If you or anyone else is interested in wordpress and would like to volunteer to keep the port updated and become the port's maintainer, by all means please do so.
