How can I get the version of CentOS upgraded to support PHP 5.5+?

According to the following commands ssh’d into my server:
cat /etc/redhat-release
/usr/local/php52/bin/php -v
/usr/local/php53/bin/php -v
/usr/local/php54/bin/php -v

My server is running the following version of CentOS:
CentOS release 5.10 (Final)

And can handle PHP versions:
PHP 5.2.17
PHP 5.3.28
PHP 5.4.31

What is the proper (if any) way to request to have the server upgraded to a newer release of CentOS so that PHP 5.5+ can be supported?

Answer #1

On any of our managed services, this is not something that can be done on request. We keep our managed servers all using the same basic setup to streamline maintenance and upgrades across the fleet. To accomplish what you are describing, you would need to use an Unmanaged VPS, which gives you root access, allowing you to make the required adustments.
