This method uses the "IUS" community repository at https://ius.io/ for CentOS 7. Make sure to run a
yum update and install the
epel-release repo to handle dependencies if you do not already have it installed.
sudo yum -y update sudo yum install –y https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
Now you can install the
sudo yum install –y https://centos7.iuscommunity.org/ius-release.rpm
When you install packages they need to be referenced as
php56u instead of
php56. Below are some example packages available for install.
sudo yum install php56u php56u-opcache php56u-xml php56u-mcrypt\ php56u-gd php56u-devel php56u-mysql php56u-intl php56u-mbstring\ php56u-bcmath php56u-soap
You can refer to this link to find out more about the specific php version of the php56u package that IUS is offering.
