2016/07/28
 
The version of PHP in CentOS 6 repository is 5.3 but Install 5.6 with RPM package if you need.
[1] It's possible to install from CentOS SCLo Software Collections.
It's OK to install it even if 5.3 is already installed because 5.6 is located on another PATH.

yum --enablerepo=centos-sclo-rh -y install rh-php56
[2] Packages from Software Collections are installed uder the /opt directory.
To use it, Load environment variables like follows.
# load environment variables

[root@dlp ~]#
scl enable rh-php56 bash
[root@dlp ~]#
php -v
