e have a 1and1.co.uk server and need to upgrade the php version from 5.1.3 to 5.3.3 however a "yum install php" fails to update anything because it can only see 5.1.3 as teh latest verion avalible.

we are aware that plesk does not support 5.3.3 but we wish to upgrade anyway (this is more a test than anything really)

what can i add to the /etc/yum.repo/something something something file to get it to update to the new php 5.3.3

Cheers

# wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-5.rpm

Looks like it is a dead link and doesn't work anymore. Try this,

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
yum update php

Find out which Linux version you are using, and follow the steps,
#rpm -Uvh http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-5.rpm
#yum –enablerepo=remi install php php-common php-pear php-pdo php-mysql php-gd php-mbstring php-mcrypt php-xml php-dom
#/etc/init.d/httpd restart
#/etc/init.d/mysqld restart
