Hey guys

When I try running the upgrade command I get the following error…

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities

Error getting repository data for remi, repository not found

I didn’t see any errors when running the previous commands.

Any thoughts?

Thanks! Everything instructions followed went breeze! But when I started localhost/phpinfo.ini it is still the same 5.3.3 version. Maybe I’ll have to restart my computer.

In order to upgrade to a newer version of PHP in CentOS 6, you’ll need to enable some external repositories, EPEL and Remi. You can download the repositories’ information and enable them with:

rpm -Uvh remi-release-6*.rpm epel-release-6*.rpm

You can then upgrade PHP with:

yum upgrade --enablerepo=remi php
