Topic: about remi php7.2 installation in CentOS 7.5

I install remi php7.2 in centos 7.5 by following instruction:
https://rpms.remirepo.net/wizard/. But not work. I have to use "yum install php72-php".

Here is output for using "yum install php":
# yum-config-manager --enable remi-php72
# yum install php
..

Is this ok [y/d/N]:

I have also run "yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=remi-php72 search php", output of this command include many php package from base.

Question is:
1) is "yum install php72-php" right command too?
2) How to make "yum install php" install remi php72-php?
3) Now phpinfo.php cannot display any content and no /etc/php.ini file. What can I do?

Thanks in advance.

Please post full yum output.

If "priorities" plugin is enabled, you have to disable or configure it (as explained by the wizard)

Laptop:  Fedora 28 x86_64 + rpmfusion + remi (SCL only)

Yes if you want multiple versions
No if you want a single version (which seems to be your case)

See Wizard instructions.

>  2) How to make "yum install php" install remi php72-php?

You cannot, php and php72-php are different packages. See the FAQ

3) What can I do?

In short:

yum remove yum-plugin-priorities

Notice: from wizard instructions:

If the priorities plugin is enabled, ensure remi-php72 have higher priority (a lower value) than base and updates

Thank Remi. I get it.

The problem is that REMI is not the highest priority. I'll set REMI as higher priority than base.
