Problem

I have a user who wants PHP 5 on our server.

Solution

This is a horrible problem. Advice on the mailing group is to rebuild apache and php from scratch and run that. Personally I'd prefer shooting the user, but since that generally frowned upon I got this to work using the delightfully useless centosplus repository:

# yum --enablerepo centosplus --exclude php-pecl-ssh2 --exclude php-eaccelerator --exclude php-pear-Image-GraphViz --exclude php-pear-PHPUnit2 install php php*

Commentary

php-eacceleratorConflict with php-pecl-apc
php-pear-PHPUnit2Missing Dependancy: php-pecl(Xdebug)
php-pear-Image-GraphVizMissing Dependancy: graphviz

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
