I’ve been trying to install the latest PHP version on my CentOS 7 droplet but every install keeps missing some key extensions.
If I try to add them afterwards, there are some dependency failures which really bugs me. I’ve removed and installed PHP from 5.4 to 7.3 about a dozen times already. Can someone provide me with some proper stepts to do so.
