You receive error "Missing PHP 5.4 distribution" when Installing Xinet Portal with PHP 5.6


While attempting to install Xinet 2019.1.0 with PHP 5.6 on CentOS 7, the installation fails due to a PHP version conflict.

You receive the following error, "Missing PHP 5.4 distribution. Please use yum to install php on this server and rerun the Xinet Portal install."



The version of Xinet that you are attempting to install does support this version of PHP. Download and install XWNPortal-19.2.1-LINUX-PHP5.6.tar from the Xinet Portal using the steps within Downloading Xinet Installers.

This version of the Portal installer works fine with both Apache 2.2 and 2.4 and is compiled to run on PHP 5.6 if the OS has that version installed.

Note: Many customers prefer this build of Xinet Portal since PHP 5.6 has addressed many security bugs found in previous versions.
