Demolished php nafig, tried to install 5.6 and again the same version !!!

Answer:

Have you tried adding a repository with 5.6 and installing a new version of the package?

For example, you can use this instruction .

After adding the package, you can check the available updates and versions of the package with the commands: yum list | grep "php" or yum check-update
