Requires and Provides

Apache requirement

A PHP library must not require php or httpd as is could be used with any webserver or any SAPI (php-cli, php-cgi, php-fpm, ...).

Only a PHP web application, which provide httpd configuration, should requires httpd and mod_php.

PHP extensions should require all the used extensions (php-date, php-gd, php-mbstring, ...) which are virtual provide of php sub-packages.

To specify a minimum PHP version, current practice is to require php-common (not available for EPEL-5 with php53). Recommended require is php(language) which is now available in fedora packages (not yet in RHEL)
