I've done this using the atomic yum repository before. Instructions for yum are here:

To summarize:

sudo wget -q -O - | sh
sudo yum install php
sudo apachectl graceful # restart Apache for new PHP to be loaded

If course you need to be logged in with SSH as root to do this, no easy way that I know to do it from the Plesk interface. But I have done this on a Plesk 9.2 and a Plesk 9.5 installation before.

Edit: added sudo and apache restart in there

take a look at the updated code, I added the sudos and also the apache restart which would be needed to load the new PHP copy – Michael Petrov Dec 24 '10 at 14:36

Now the atomic repo will directly install php 5.3 by default. So, just had a thought that this will be helpful for someone who is looking to install php 5.2.X from atomic.

wget -q -O - | sh
echo "exclude=php-*5.3*" >> /etc/yum.conf
yum upgrade php
yum -y remove atomic-release*
