I understand how to ignore packages in pacman by editing the pacman.conf and addeding packages to the ignore list. My question is what packages do I need to include?
I use Apache and mod-PHP on my webserver running WordPress. I don't trust that WordPress and all my plugins will be updated to PHP 8 anytime soon. So I would like to continue to update my websever with the exception of PHP.
Can I ignore php*? Can wildcards be used? Do I need to specify each package? so PHP, php-gd, etc.
Do you know which packages I absolutely must include for php to not upgrade yet continue to work?
I feel that I need to do more than just not update php specifically.
