On CentOS 5, the "yum install php" command loads PHP5.1.6. Why would that be?
yum [fedoraproject.org] is a software package manager that installs, updates, and removes packages on RPM-based systems. It automatically computes dependencies and figures out what things should occur to install packages. yum makes it easier to maintain groups of machines without having to manually update each one using rpm.
