It's not as simple as "yum install" as you can see below and it doesn't stop there.

Run what is below to avoid dependency hell that Idecided not to paste.

yum -y install package-cleanup
package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
package-cleanup --orphans
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
#this fixed it
yum clean all

This will require downtime but I couldn't fiind another way that worked:

echo y|yum remove php-*;echo y|yum install php53*

yum -x php53-odbc64 install php53*

To solve the above you have to remove some weird stuff that Zend adds to your default vhost.

#ZEND-{DC789661BC47C707017CAF9F2BB500D1}
#Include "/usr/local/zend/etc/sites.d/zend-default-vhost-80.conf"

#ZEND-{15168DADCE0E562BD3FC24EB9302589D}

Your php.ini will probably be wiped out and overwritten so make sure you enable short tags or PHPcode with


/etc/php.ini
short_open_tag = On
