Protectbase does work ... however it is not what you are trying to

The purpose of protect base is to allow you to do updates from a
repository and prevent updating any protected packages but allow
updating of non-protected packages.

php would show up as protected ... and would not update.

You need to edit the centosplus section of CentOSBase.repo and use:


that will allow you to get only php from centosplus.

You should be able to see the packages that are upgraded here:


(pick your arch)

and you can download the packages manually from [os] and [updates] and
replace them with the command:

rpm -Uvh package1 package2 package3
