Ubuntu php 7.3 install

sudo apt install software-properties-common -y
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php -y sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y php7.3

Now install PHP-FPM 7.1 with all extensions needed.

sudo apt install php7.3-fpm  php7.3-curl php7.3-cli php7.3-mysql php7.3-gd php7.3-xsl php7.3-json php7.3-intl php-pear php7.3-dev php7.3-common php7.3-mbstring php7.3-zip php7.3-soap php7.3-bcmath -y

After the installation is complete, check the PHP version and installed extensions using PHP commands.

php -v
php -me

Next, we will configure the php.ini file for the PHP-FPM and PHP-CLI.

Edit the php.ini files using nano

nano /etc/php/7.3/fpm/php.ini
nano /etc/php/7.3/cli/php.ini

Change the value of those lines as below.

memory_limit = 512M
max_execution_time = 180
zlib.output_compression = On

Save and exit.


sed -i "s/memory_limit = .*/memory_limit = 512M/" /etc/php/7.3/fpm/php.ini
sed -i "s/upload_max_filesize = .*/upload_max_filesize = 128M/" /etc/php/7.3/fpm/php.ini
sed -i "s/zlib.output_compression = .*/zlib.output_compression = on/" /etc/php/7.3/fpm/php.ini
sed -i "s/max_execution_time = .*/max_execution_time = 18000/" /etc/php/7.3/fpm/php.ini

sed -i "s/memory_limit = .*/memory_limit = 512M/" /etc/php/7.3/cli/php.ini
sed -i "s/upload_max_filesize = .*/upload_max_filesize = 128M/" /etc/php/7.3/cli/php.ini
sed -i "s/zlib.output_compression = .*/zlib.output_compression = on/" /etc/php/7.3/cli/php.ini
sed -i "s/max_execution_time = .*/max_execution_time = 18000/" /etc/php/7.3/cli/php.ini

update-alternatives –set php /usr/bin/php7.3
