Upgrade PHP 5.3 to 5.4 on CentOS 6

I had to recently update PHP 5.3 on my CodeAnywhere DevBox to PHP 5.4.32. The operating system running on CodeAnywhere DevBox instances is Centos 6.5. and it uses yum package manager.

These are the exact commands I ran on the DevBox

sudo rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

sudo rpm -Uvh http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm

sudo yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-test install httpd php php-common

sudo yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-test install php-pecl-apc php-cli php-pear php-pdo php-mysql php-pgsql php-pecl-mongo php-sqlite php-pecl-memcache php-pecl-memcached php-gd php-mbstring php-mcrypt php-xml

After this, it’s done!

You could simply create a php file and run phpinfo() to check the version.

Let me know if you need help.
