As root issue the following command for CentOS 6.5 and the 6.X Series

 

rpm -Uvh http://mirror.webtatic.com/yum/el6/latest.rpm

 

For RHEL 5.10 and the Centos / RHEL 5.X series

 

rpm -Uvh http://mirror.webtatic.com/yum/el5/latest.rpm

 

Next issue the following commands
yum install yum-plugin-replace

yum replace php-common --replace-with=php55w-common

 

Now restart Apache for the changes to take effect
