On december 20th 2012, the PHP group has released PHP 5.4.10 and PHP 5.3.20 :
These releases fix about 15 bugs. Please note that the PHP 5.3 series will enter an end of life cycle and receive only critical fixes as of March 2013. All users of PHP are encouraged to upgrade to PHP 5.4.
The corresponding packages are now available on Dotdeb for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” on both amd64 and i386 architectures.
As usual, please read the ChangeLog before upgrading and be sure to use to the latest packages before reporting any issue.

Great work as usual. I use your packages in 2 Debian Squeeze servers of mine and I’ve faced no issues so far.
Guillaume, thank you for the great work in the last years!!
What you think? If I use Squeeze with your PHP 5.4 already, will this be a problem when I upgrade to Wheezy, when it`s released?
@Tim : there will be no problem, I’m ensuring a full compatibility with later Debian packages.
Thanks for this update, I’ll try it maybe tomorrow if I have a big enough free time window. I wonder if @Geo got the same issue as with 5.4.9 (http://localhost:8080/2012/11/26/php-5-4-9-and-php-5-3-19/)
Hi Gillaume! First of all let me thank you for the great work done at dot deb 🙂
Second, APC has been updated today to 3.1.4. What is the update policy for dotdeb php5-apc packages? Will they be updated on the next PHP release to 3.1.14?
@Albert : yes, APC 3.1.14 will be available with the next PHP packages.
I have just upgraded my server from PHP 5.3 to 5.4. All done without any issues (except for my own stupidity of course). Thanks!
I upgraded from PHP 5.3.20 to PHP 5.4.10 using your packages. Now when I try to build the mysqlnd_ms plugin, using pecl install mysqlnd_ms , I get an error saying the mysqlnd.h file is missing.
I’m not sure if that’s related to this bug? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/php5/+bug/1056072
@Vid Luther : that’s exactly the same problem as reported on launchpad. I’ll try to fix it in the next releases. Could you please fill in a bug report on https://github.com/gplessis/dotdeb-php5/issues ?
Waiting for a fix, you can do this :
It would be very useful to have instructions on how to install the packages themselves rather than just announcing they are available, same goes for your instructions page
@Luke : do you mean typing “apt-get install”, followed by the names of the packages you want to install? 🙂
Maybe pointing to the repos 😉 I myself tend to forget where they are ^^ (on a site note: still haven’t had the time to try those new packages)
Same causes, same effects: the problem I had with PHP 5.4.9 (very slow loading of pages) still occurs with this version. To fix is, I only need to downgrade php5-common and libapache2-mod-php5filter to 5.4.8 (php5-cli, php5-curl, php5-gd, php5-mcrypt and php5-mysql I can keep at version 5.4.10 without slowing the thing down). I’m on Debian 6.0.6.
Xcache 3.0 is incompatible with ionCube loader.
It’s fixed in 3.0.1 (http://xcache.lighttpd.net/browser/tags/3.0.1/ChangeLog).
Can you please update Xcache version in Dotdeb repository!
@proforg : Xcache 3.0.1 will be available with the incoming PHP 5.4.11 and 5.3.21 packages
@profog: build you own updated xcache package, like:
# install req and helper script
apt-get install dh-make-pecl
wget –no-check-certificate https://raw.github.com/gplessis/dotdeb-php5-pecl/squeeze-php53/debianize
# get source and unpack
tar -xzf xcache-3.0.1.tar.gz
# setup your Maintainer Setup
export DEBFULLNAME=”_here_comes_your_name_”; export DEBEMAIL=”_your_email_”
# install xcache with updated src
dpkg -i php5-xcache_5.3.20-1~dotdeb.0_amd64.deb
#and set php5-xcache on hold
echo “php5-xcache hold” | dpkg –set-selections
# and wait for a php5 5.3.21 on dotdeb.org repo and unhold it again
echo “php5-xcache install” | dpkg –set-selections
please update the xcache pkg asap – so a apache2 webserver with libapache2-mod-php5, php5-xcache and ioncube doesnt start anymore!
Will there be an update to php5-suhosin as well? It will be removed when I update 5.3 to 5.4.
@Christian : there won’t be any php5-suhosin package for PHP 5.4+, sorry
That´s great, thanks for all your work! Is there a date yet for PHP 5.4.11 & APC 3.1.14?
@Sven : in the next few hours/days
Anyone else having problems with the PHP5-FPM package using PHP 5.4? It seems that PHP5-FPM does not accept any connections. Causing Nginx to report 502 Bad gateway. I posted more information at https://github.com/gplessis/dotdeb-php5/issues/25 .
