How to install php7.x Before we begin need to install a few things first

To install php 7.x we need to install a few things first

sudo yum -y install epel-release
sudo yum -y install
sudo yum -y install yum-utils

Now enable the version of php 7 you wish you install
sudo yum-config-manager –enable remi-php72

Note: if you want to install php 7.0 or 7.1 you can use the command below.
yum-config-manager –enable remi-php70
yum-config-manager –enable remi-php71
You see 72 stands for 7.2, 70 stands for version 7.0 and 71 stands for 7.1

Finally its time to install PHP 7.2
sudo yum -y install php

Add (MySQL/MariaDB) database support to php
sudo yum -y install php-mysqlnd

sudo service httpd restart
sudo systemctl restart httpd.service

Congrats you have now successfully install PHP 7.x in your server.
