For the 2 threads going on about PHP 5.2/5.3...

CentOS tracks upstream whose version is...

If you want something newer, you have to go off the beaten path.

try this...(as root)
wget http://dev.centos.org/centos/5/CentOS-Testing.repo
mv CentOS-Testing.repo /etc/yum.repos.d
yum --enablerepo=c5-testing check-update

and this would allow to update to version 5.2.9-2.el5.centos if you

yum --enablerepo=c5-testing update php

and if enough people actually convinced the developers that
5.2.9-2.el5.centos were feasible, then they would probably move it into
the 'Extras' repository.
