I just updated PHP and MySQl on my VPS with the current Versions from Atomic Repo.

Everything worked out fine so far.

From console I get the new PHP 5.3:

[root@server phpMyAdmin]# php -v

PHP 5.3.16 (cli) (built: Aug 20 2012 11:18:05) Copyright (c) 1997-2012 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2012 Zend Technologies with the ionCube PHP Loader v4.0.5, Copyright (c) 2002-2011, by ionCube Ltd.

But through Apache I still get the old version (5.1.6).

The server is running some old version of crappy Plesk Panel. That gives me the option to choose between Apache Modul, fCGI and CGI-BIN.

Any hints, how to update apache, so it will use the new PHP Version?

EDIT: I just needed to restart httpd (/etc/init.d/httpd restart)

It would be nice if you'd accept quanta's answer, seeing how that was the solution. –  HopelessN00b Oct 9 '12 at 3:42

Have you tried to restart Apache?

sudo /etc/init.d/httpd restart

What an embarrassment! Thank you very much. I thought, yum has done that for me. –  mblaettermann Sep 12 '12 at 14:42
