The PHP upgrade for CentOS is brutal. I have no idea why they have not upgraded to 5.3, or even 5.2.
Please see the comments on CentOS 5.6 (at the bottom) on how to manually upgrade PHP to 5.3
If this is your first FOG server, i [I]really[/I] recommend Ubuntu. APT’s package management is far superior to YUM’s.
The package maintainers for APT packages are standards nazis; they adhere to a very strict set of standards.
Checking the packages for PHP5 from Ubuntu/Debian shows 5.3.8 is the latest version.
