The web page needed some update. The CentOS Web Stack has been
available for CentOS-4 only. I have amended the description.

I've run the ocsinventory-server from remi repo for a while, letting it
pull in the msyql and php versions from there (and I think you also need
epel enabled for additional dependencies). It hasn't broken anything
obvious. I keep the repo disabled in the yum setup and explicitly
enable it with enablerepo=remi on the command line when updating
ocsinventory.

That probably depends on what php-based apps you need to keep running.
Nothing else should care - but you do have to pay attention to what
other package updates might be pulled in when you do updates. I usually
do an update without remi enabled first, then with, and look over the
list that it plans to install before accepting it.

I recommend the repo *if* you want to go to 5.3.x. Normal precautions
(like using priorities or not having it enabled by default) apply
nevertheless.

Yes, some PHP software may not run anymore. I think this should be
obvious.

CentOS 4.x comes with php4 and mysql4 and CentOS 4.x/centosplus
includes php5 (5.1.6) and mysql5 (5.0.82sp1). CentOS 5.x comes with
php5 (5.1.6) and mysql5 (5.0.77)... CentOS 4.x is still alive and well
and will be for a few more years.
"http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories" is not
version specific -- it covers all the currently supported versions.
