Upgrading to PHP 7.0 was like a mess. I was struggling with the issue for several days. Today, I’m writing a way to upgrade PHP 7.0.
wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-X.noarch.rpm wget http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-X.rpm rpm -Uvh remi-release-7.rpm epel-release-latest-X.noarch.rpm
Replace X with your OS version(6,7)
Active remi-php70 Repository
yum-config-manager --enable remi-php70
if there is any error like “yum-config-manager command not found”, then you will have to install “yum-utils”.
yum update && yum install yum-utils
After installing “yum-utils” active “remi-php70” repository.
Now, PHP 5.x will be upgraded to latest version of PHP(7.0).
Restart your httpd server to view changes.
yum httpd restart
