I assume that after saving the php.ini I would
yum remove php
yum install php53
However, I am not sure what you mean by
and then install the php53 packages you previously had
I have been running PHP as it came with Centos 5.
Another question has to do with the GD library. How can I tell
if it is installed *or* is it automatically part of php35?
Oh yes...if there is a problem with php35, are there any problems
in reinstalling php 5.1?
