How to Install PHP 7.3 on CentOS 7

1) Add PHP 7.3 Remi repository. PHP 7.3 is available for CentOS 7 and Fedora distributions from the Remi repository. Add it to your system by running


sudo yum -y install  

sudo yum -y install epel-release yum-utils


2) Disable repo for PHP 5.4. By default, the enabled repository is for PHP 5.4. Disable this repo and enable on for PHP 7.3


sudo yum-config-manager --disable remi-php54
sudo yum-config-manager --enable remi-php73


3) How to Install PHP 7.3 on CentOS 7


# sudo yum -y install php php-cli php-fpm php-mysqlnd php-zip php-devel php-gd php-mcrypt php-mbstring php-curl php-xml php-pear php-bcmath php-json


Check version installed


# php -v


4) Installing other PHP 7.3 Extensions 
As an example, to install a mysql module for PHP applications that use MySQL databases, you’ll run:


# sudo yum install php-mysql


This will only work if the default repository for PHP packages is 7.3


# sudo yum install php-mysqlnd

## rpm -qi php-mysqlnd
