What Linux distribution and which version is the server running?
The easiest way is to have the server OS updated to a later version of the distribution you are using. Due to the level of integration within Linux distros, it is usually not a good policy to upgrade manually to newer PHP/MySQL versions which would not be supported on the underlying OS version.

This indicates that you might be using the Mandriva distribution: [mandriva.com...] . Mandriva uses the
urpmi command and not yum (which is for Red Hat/Fedora).
You are probably using version 10.2, which dates from a few years back (2005). Mandriva has release many new versions since then, it is unlikely that you will be able to easily upgrade PHP and MySQL without compiling them manually - and even then matching the dependencies will be a challenge.
So as I said above, you really need an OS upgrade. Is this a dedicated server? Who supplies and manages it?
