Additional repos/install php

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

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
