Update from PHP 5.3 to 5.4 on CentOS 6.3 while keeping Plesk

Johannes Klauß asked:

I need to update the servers PHP version, but when I try to remove the old php to install the new PHP 5.4 via yum it wants to remove the whole plesk suite which I want to keep.

I followed this guide https://serverfault.com/a/461418/155005 but it didn’t changed anything.

Is there a way to keep plesk and update php?

If I want to install the php 5.4 and then remove php 5.3, there is a conflict shown between the two php-common packages.

My answer:

Don’t remove the old packages before installing the new packages. There’s no need to do so.
