As per the URL you have given it means that PHP 5.3 is available as a seprate package for RHEL 5.6, PHEL 5.6 comes with PHP 5.1.6.

If you want to install the PHP 5.3 then you need to remove the earlier installed PHP and its dependencies.

you can download RPM from below given URL.

I suggest that you stick with yum to manage your packages i you are not versed in rpm and satisfying dependencies manually.

There are other repositories available for RHEL and it's derivatives.

Below URL is relevant to CentOS, but should work on RHEL.

If you need support you can try the Zend Server which is supported for RHEL 5 or use the community edition.

Please refer RedHat support policy from the following URL.
https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/

Regarding the production support, RedHat support all the packages available through RHN and DO NOT support, third party packages, custom/modified packages etc. Please refer the following URL for more details about what RedHat support and do not support.
https://access.redhat.com/support/offerings/production/soc.html

Again, Red Hat will not support any third party packages or if you compile from source code. Hence you will not get support for any of your third party or custom compiled packages.

php-5.1.6 is the latest PHP version available in RHEL 5 as of now. RHEL 5.6 will be released with PHP version 5.3.

Please be informed that Redhat have their own version numbering which does not essentially match with the upstream version numbers. RedHat maintain different packages in  repositories which have relevant bug fixes and security enhancements created by the upstream maintainers.

The redhat version I am using is RHEL 5.6, i don't think PHP 5.3 available, it is only PHP 5.1.6.

You might need to use a third-party repository (for example) to get packages such as PHP 5.3 for RHEL5. look at http://iuscommunity.org/ http://iuscommunity.org/2010/11/10/rhel-5-6-and-php53/

Be aware, since you use RHEL and If value stability and reliability, you should not willingly use anything non-standard. As you know any software packages applications certified for RHEL5 are tested only with standard software, installing non-standard software may harm your support agreement with RedHat.

Production Support Scope of Coverage
If RedHat ship it, they support
Installation
Usage
Configuration
Diagnosis

Do not support**
Modified RPMs

Implementation and development of security rules and policies
Red Hat Extras/Supplementary channel(more details)
Optional repository/channel (more details)

Packages included to satisfy dependencies, or "incidental inclusions" when deployed as standalone items.
** Add-on services are available for these exceptions. Ask your Red Hat sales representative for more information.
