How to Upgrade PHP 5.3 to PHP 5.6 on CentOS

Here we are upgrading PHP 5.3 to PHP 5.6 on CentOS.

 1. Confirm the current version: php -v

 2. Install the Remi and EPEL RPM repositories

If you haven’t already done so, install the Remi and EPEL repositories

wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-6.noarch.rpm && rpm -Uvh epel-release-latest-6.noarch.rpm

wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm && rpm -Uvh remi-release-6*.rpm

3. Enable the REMI repository globally:


vi /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo

Under the section that looks like [remi] and [remi-php56] change the following

enabled=0 to enabled=1

4. Upgrade PHP 5.3 to PHP 5.6

yum -y upgrade php*

let’s verify that you have PHP 5.6 installed:

 php -v
