CentOS x86_64 and lamp install at least php 5.2

I've just set up a virtual web server (VMWare) installing 64bit CentOS.  When I install php it gives me an older version.  I don't neccessarily need 5.3, but I would like 5.2 at least.  The version it installs is 5.1 (if I recall correctly).  I've attempted the remi repository, but I'm guessing I'm doing something wrong.
Now, I've also set up a 32 bit CentOS (another virtual) using remi and I had no issues whatsover (newest available).  Its up and running with no issues.  Can someone assist please?
Needing the x86_64 php/apache/mysql/pear etc.
Thanks!

There aren't any 64-bit binaries for Apache.  http://wiki.apache.org/httpd/FAQ#Where_can_I_download_.28certified.29_64_bit_Apache_httpd_binaries_for_Windows.3F

You would have to compile your own.

Is there any benefit of my having a webserver on a 64 bit CentOS system over a 32 bit?

I honestly don't know.  I can tell you that the Linux vendors don't seem to be in a hurry to provide it.

Ok, guess I'll blow away the 64 bit and stick with my original version.  Was looking for ways to improve the server specs (faster mysql, php etc).  Thanks.

I'd suggest that you keep looking.  It will happen one of these days.  Thanks for the points.

Here's a comparison of 32 vs 64 bit from two years ago: http://www.tuxradar.com/node/33
