I'm sorry but PHP 5.4.16 (the version I see after installing php via yum) is REALLY REALLY OLD. It is in fact an unsupported branch which received its last security update on Sep 3 2015.

What does CentOS community suggest to get a version of php that is not dead for CentOS 7?

Via yum update of course. And reading the https://access.redhat.com/security/updates/backporting backporting policy upstream.

Could you show the output from yum for that? The ipa packages currently conflict with themselves so I doubt if that's IUS's fault. The conflict for php would be a known one - you have to pick either the distro 'php' packages or the IUS php56u ones, not both.

> When will Centos go to version 5.6?

By design, and for stability, CentOS 7 will stay with 5.4 by default forever.

But, official upstream (aka, Red Hat) answer for newer versions are software collections

Ex, for PHP, read: https://developers.redhat.com/blog/2017 ... tion-tips/

And of course, also available for CentOS users, see
