I am running a CentOS 7 server and just installed ownCloud via the yum repo for CentOS 7. In that install I found that it requires php-mysql. I had to jump through some hoops since the PHP repo that I am using does not support php-mysql in favor of php-mysqlnd.
Is there any particular reason why this package is requiring php-mysql rather than php-mysqlnd??
AFAIK php-mysqlnd is a drop in replacement and has essentially replaced php-mysql.
