CentOS 4.x comes with php4 and mysql4 and CentOS 4.x/centosplus
includes php5 (5.1.6) and mysql5 (5.0.82sp1). CentOS 5.x comes with
php5 (5.1.6) and mysql5 (5.0.77)... CentOS 4.x is still alive and well
and will be for a few more years.
"http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories" is not
version specific -- it covers all the currently supported versions.
