I hate to say this, but when it comes to apache and php I find building them from the source on apache.org and php.net to be a lot less painful because of the dependency problems that seem to plague php.  The final straw was when Nessus said one of them was vulnerable and no updates were on the repositories.  Depending on how elaborate a web server you're planning to run (and mine is very elaborate) it might serve you well to not use yum for this.

Check this out

but what I had to do, was to put the same priority to CentOSPlus, run

yum install perl

and then back the priority to 2 again, and then install the rest of
packages I needed.

let me know if that helps.
