Installing later versions of PHP - Tutorial CentOS

OS Version CentOS 8.2.2004 Server Core
Webmin version 1.960
Usermin version 1.810
Virtualmin version 6.13

Maybe you can sticky this because many ask about this all the time and I was about to as well, but found it in the documentation pages:

For CentOS

1
dnf -y install http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-8.rpm && dnf clean all

2
dnf -y install php74-php-{cli,pdo,fpm,zip,gd,xml,mysqlnd}

Result PHP 7.4.12:

This will install the packages from Remi (I have no clue about what Remi is and why it is reliable, but that may be another discussion, I am rather new here and don’t really get why use something other than the original Virtualmin sources, nor why the Virtualmin people don’t release this or refer you to PHP.net… )

In the linked documentation page you have more info about other versions, setting up multiple versions and for other OS. I have not tested any of that.
