My CentOS 5.7 ships with libxml2 2.6.26 that is very outdated and also causes many problems with my current PHP 5.3.3. I need to update libxml2 to 2.7.8 version or at least 2.7.3+ i've readed many posts, used google to find a solution but i'm really unable to solve this issue that is driving me nuts. So please, if there is anyone who knows how to upgrade this library without breaking the OS, please, help me. I need a secure and confirmed answer.
Many thanks in advance :)
