This is quick guide, howto install Zend Framework (ZF) 1.12.3 on Fedora 18/17/16/15, CentOS 6.4/6.3/6.2/6.1/6/5.9 and Red Hat (RHEL) 6.4/6.3/6.2/6.1/6/5.9. This guide also works with older Fedora releases, like Fedora 13/12/11 and also with older CentOS/Red Hat RHEL 5 releases. I use Remi repository here because it’s updated more frequently than example Fedora’s own repositories. What is Zend Framework? Zend Framework is a simple, straightforward, open-source software framework for PHP 5 designed to eliminate the tedious details of coding and let you focus on the big picture.
