I want to update my CentOS 6 PHP version from 5.3 to 5.4 so I tried this guide:

But after running yum install php54w I get this:

Setting up Install Process
No package php54w available.
Error: Nothing to do

I've tried to reinstall many times, but it didn't seem to help...

Tips, anyone?

@techie007 Thanks for your reponse. I actually saw them before and they didn't really help me... – user196901 Feb 10 '13 at 15:54

It seems like /etc/yum.conf has php-* excluded in it... Removed it and it's now solved.
