I am trying to run php-fpm on my Centos VPS but when I get to php-fpm part I get an error.

I downloaded packages from these links:

rpm --import https://fedoraproject.org/static/0608B895.txt
rpm -ivh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

Then after all the other services went fine I tried this command:

yum install php php-fpm mod_fastcgi
Loaded plugins: priorities, refresh-packagekit
1360 packages excluded due to repository priority protections
Setting up Install Process
Package php-5.3.3-14.el6_3.i686 already installed and latest version
No package php-fpm available.
Package mod_fastcgi-2.4.6-2.el6.rf.i686 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

Enable php-fpm

chkconfig --levels 235 php-fpm on
error reading information on service php-fpm: No such file or directory

For some reason I have package php-5.3.3-14.el6_3.i686` already installed and latest version but I should be having


I tried downloading package from this link but when repeating the process I got the same results. So why can't I run the php-fpm services?

P.S. I tried even with

services php5-fpm start

No luck.

Install the remi-release RPM from the remi repository.

You must also edit the /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo that it installs, in order to enable the repo. Find the [remi] section and change enabled=0 to enabled=1.

Then you can use the packages the repository provides.

If you think of this rpm --import rpms.famillecollet.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-remi rpm -ivh rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm I already didi it. Also check out this prntscr.com/saotu –  IceD Feb 10 '13 at 23:29
I've noticed that I don't have [epel] section in my repo . prntscr.com/sarmw And this tutorial says it should be there. freevps.us/thread-7421.html –  IceD Feb 10 '13 at 23:52
You wouldn't have an EPEL section in the remi repo! It's in the epel repo. –  Michael Hampton Feb 10 '13 at 23:55
Yeah I got it now when I looked in my Putty. This is my epel.repo prntscr.com/sas2y And this is my remi.repo prntscr.com/sas62 –  IceD Feb 10 '13 at 23:56
OK, you're done. Now you can install your packages. –  Michael Hampton Feb 10 '13 at 23:56
