Amazon Linux 2 amazon-linux-extras PHP 8.1 support

13

Hello,

Do we have any estimate on when PHP 8.1 will be added to amazon-linux-extras on Amazon Linux 2?

Thanks!

  • Yes please. This has been months now. Why do updates continue to come out with no php81? https://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/latest/platforms/platform-history-php.html

  • Came here to post the same question. It's now 4 months post release and there are a lot of goodies in php8.1 which we can access without having to build from source or enable additional yum repos.

  • This is really frustrating - 8.0 was available shortly after release, so what is happening here? I check availability at least once a week (much more often most weeks) - but it never comes...

    If the intention is NOT to add it, I'd like to know, so we can change repo for the future, so any indication of an ETA one way or another would help enormously.

  • It would be nice to get an update to this. AWS has traditionally been super slow on PHP upgrade / modules...Hopefully soon!

  • Symfony 6.1 is loaded as a dependency when installing Laravel 8.8. Symfony 6.1 requires PHP 8.1. i guess AWS does not plan to support Laravel 8 or 9 on its AL2 EC2 instances?

I have no answer, I just continue to wait week after week, month after month with no indication how to request this feature in a better way. PHP 8.1 was released in November of 2021, so we've waited November, December, January, February and now into March. What is going on?

I'm waiting on this too. It feels like Amazon Linux 2 has been neglected ever since AL 2022 was announced. PHP updates are delayed, MariaDB is 5 versions behind, awscli is very outdated, etc.

  • PHP 8.0.x is at 8.0.16 right now at the time of commenting, so that is receiving relatively frequent updates - but 8.1 is completely overlooked for unknown reasons. 😡

The official Beanstalk roadmap for all platforms is here: https://github.com/aws/elastic-beanstalk-roadmap/projects/1 . PHP 8.1 is in the "we're working on it" status.

I wonder when AWS will finally make PHP 8.1 available on amazon-linux-extras, such that it can be used with Amazon Linux 2? We have been waiting for this for months now. Please speed it up!
