    I’m upgrading from PHP 5.1.6 to 5.3.2 (OS is CentOS 5.6) and noticed that some packages have been dropped out from the php packages:

    php53-pear -> Check the Bug 673521 from RedHat
    php53-mcrypt -> Not available anymore in CentOS 5.6. A Workaround would be IUS Community Link or build by yourself.
    php53-mhash -> mhash has been replaced by hash
    php53-pdo -> will be installed together with soap
    php53-pecl-apc -> Not available anymore in CentOS 5.6
    php53-pecl-memcache -> Not available anymore in CentOS 5.6

    can anyone confirm that upgrading won’t break WordPress. In other words, does WordPress use any of these packages or have these packages been merged with other php-packages?
