I'm trying to install phpBB and am getting that PHP 7.3 is too new to be supported, with a suggestion of downgrading to 7.2.
Am I correct that I want to downgrade PHP to 7.2, and if so, what are the preferred methods? aptitude does not appear to offer a php7.2 complement of functions.
I might be able to install from source, but if that's the best option I see, I probably don't see the best option.
How can / should I make PHP 7.2 available to phpBB, whether through making a parallel PHP 7 installation or some other means?
sudo update-alternatives --set php /usr/bin/php7.0 sudo update-alternatives --set php-config /usr/bin/php-config7.0 sudo update-alternatives --set phpdbg /usr/bin/phpdbg7.0 sudo update-alternatives --set phpize /usr/bin/phpize7.0
All but the first one return a result like
update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for phpize. Is this a problem?
Also, for me having multiple PHP versions available is a want and not a need. A single recent, lingua franca release would be welcome.
As far as Apache integration goes, is anything more needed to get PHP to pull e.g. 7.2 after having set it up running
