  • Hi,
    I am not an expert and having trouble updating to PHP 7.4 from 7.2.
    I have Apache-NGINX-Varnish, CentOS 7.7 and CWP Pro.
    I did the 2 steps above to install remi repository and PHP and 7.4 is present in the repositories list.
    However php -v still returns 7.2 and CWP also shows the old version.
    The CWP Switcher only shows and can build up to 7.3.
    What else do I need to do to? I believe I need to change some config files to get NGINX use the new PHP version, however I don’t want to experiment and crash my server…
