Topic: php not found when installing 7.3.8 on centos 6.9

Hello, I'm attempting to install php 7.3 on centos 6.9. I followed the wizzard and didn't find any packages marked as upgraded when I ran "yum update". After that I removed php
using yum and attempted to install. Still nothing. Searching using "yum search php" shows no php or php73 packages.

Unfortunately I can't seem to post the following as code or a quote... not sure why.

Here is the output of "yum install php":
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror

* updates: repos.dfw.quadranet.com
No package php available.
Error: Nothing to do

Here is the yum.conf:

Strangely "remi-safe" missing in your pasted output (this repo is mandatory for PHP dependencies)

> centos 6.9

Start by a yum update to get 6.10 (only the latest is supported)

BTW, I don't understand your issue.

Please raise yum debug level (see -d option) and post full yum output.

And you should also consider using centos 7, as version 6 is close to its end of life (in a few months)

Ok, I've enabled remi-safe. I've attempted to run the yum update command but get "No packages marked for update" so I'm still on 6.9. I'm still looking into why I can't seem to update to 6.10. I'll ask on the centos forums if needed. I still can't currently install php or php73.
