I'm migrating an internal Mediawiki over to a new CentOS 4 system. The
old server's running FC3 and has a tarball install, ideally I want to
stick to properly packaged software as far as possible.

[wmcdonald at willspc ~]$ yum deplist mediawiki

   Unsatisfied dependency

Looking at the RPMForge mediawiki package, it requires php >= 4.3.11
which isn't available either from RPMForge or CentOS 4 base.
php-4.3.9-3.9 seems to be the latest.

What's the best way to proceed here then? I noticed there are PHP5
packages in the centosplus repo, but those wouldn't be available to an
RHEL system.
