If your package manager is not providing a newer version then probably for a reason. Please consult the documentation of your server OS which PHP versions are offered and for what reason. – hakre Aug 19 '11 at 14:45

Managed to update using utterramblings by typing

nano -w /etc/yum.repos.d/utterramblings.repo

and then paste the following into the editor:

name=Jason's Utter Ramblings Repo
