Plesk 8.3.0 Update PHP 5.2.5 to more current version

I am currently running Plesk 8.3.0 with PHP 5.2.5 and I want to know how I can update PHP to a more current version?  The only solution provided by my hosting provider is to buy a new server, transfer all my information over and then cancel the old server.  I have been orking with *nix boxes for long enough to know that there has to be a way to update the current install, unfortunately not long enough to know how to do what I need.

Any help or suggestions for this?

Hi;
take a backup of php.ini file and extensions directory(full back of your server  would be great in fact) and use the update command of your linux distribution to install the current stable php package.Plesk does not bother with the php version mostly.(If there is no huge change like passing from php4 to php5.

I got yum installed and updated all of my installed packages.  I know that it worked because Plesk is now running at 8.6.0 rather than 8.3.0.  PHP did not update though.  I am reading about different repositories and it looks like CentOS may not have a newer version of PHP.  Do you know of any other repositories that may have a newer version of PHP?

When I do "yum update php*" it says "No packages marked for Update"

Thanks!
