I do not believe that CentOS 5 is capable of speaking TLS 1.2 - the highest it can manage is TLS 1.0 I believe. You would need to update to CentOS 6 or 7 (a reinstall is required) to get this capability. Since CentOS 5 now has 14 weeks of security support left before it goes End of Life, you would be wise to consider upgrading sooner rather than later in any case.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
