I am trying to install the mbstring PHP extension however I have run into a problem.

I use CentOS 6, 64 Bit.
[root]#yum install php-mbstring
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * epel: mirror.utexas.edu
Setting up Install Process

           Requires: php-common = 5.3.2-6.el6_0.1
           Installed: php-common-5.3.8-1.el6.remi.x86_64 (@remi)
               php-common = 5.3.8-1.el6.remi
           Available: php-common-5.3.2-6.el6.x86_64 (base)
               php-common = 5.3.2-6.el6

               php-common = 5.3.2-6.el6_0.1
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
[root]#

[root]# yum update php-common

you could install it using one of these rpms:

ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/PLD/dists/ra/PLD/i386/PLD/RPMS/php-mbstring-4.2.3-8.i386.rpm

in case you weren't sure (sorry if you were):

wget ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/PLD/dists/ra/PLD/i386/PLD/RPMS/php-mbstring-4.2.3-8.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh php-mbstring-4.2.3-8.i386.rpm

Unfortunately that rpm is no longer at that address:

ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/PLD/dists/ra/PLD/i386/PLD/RPMS/php-mbstring-4.2.3-8.i386.rpm

Error: "No such directory or file"
