I am having troubles adding mysql support for my php installation, this installation was made using a ready to use-package that came with our VPS.

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I am a noob using Linux, so could you tell me which command should I use to install a compatible php-mysql module?

Thank you so much!

Try removing all remi php packages, disable remi repository and install the default centos 6 php 5.3.3 packages.

Yeah, I think it was due to that repo. I had to do a 'yum clean all'. Thanks! – Multitut Nov 14 '12 at 5:00
