According to my YUM repository (epel), PHP 5.3.3 is the latest & greatest. I definitely prefer to install via yum.

Suggestions? Tips?

TIA,

Server setup is outside the scope of this support forum.
You'd need to ask where ever you got YUM.

That sounds like you are running an outdated version of centos, as that most definitely is not the latest version in their repos.

I would suggest that if you install a new vps to use the most recent release of centos really.

Simple shared cpanel hosting is far cheaper, especially if you're just trying it out to see how it goes.

So ... it assassinates anti spam?

Ow, wait: 3.3 has been released.

You, colleagues o'mine are incorrigible.

The second I clicked on [Submit] I knew this was going to happen. Being an efficient programmer, I was short circuiting the expression:

"I have the excellent anti spam, spam assassin"
