Topic: Can't update php (CentOS 7. PHP 5.5 -> 7.2)

Hey guys, somebody care to help me to upgrade php 5.5 (CentOs 7 system)?. My knowledge is not big enough and I need some help from people who know well what they are doing.
I followed Wizard instructions but I can't use "Yum install php" because I get the following message back: "No package php available". (after installing the repo and enabling it according to the wizard isntructions).

So to recap, I entered following commands:
yum install dl.fedoraproject. org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
yum install rpms.remirepo. net/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm
yum install yum-utils
yum-config-manager --enable remi-php72
yum update

I see a lot getting updated but not my php.

Thanks in advance

Re: Can't update php (CentOS 7. PHP 5.5 -> 7.2)

Also, how was installed PHP 5.5 ?

$ which php
$ rpm -qa '*php*'

And after doing Yum Update there is not much to show, it just updated tons of things before I closed my terminal and now I'm not getting that same update output. There was just no php file to be seen anywhere. Also the rest is in Dutch (Dutch output). If this is not enough to spot anything weird then just delete this topic, I will check with some Dutch tech guy who I will give SSH

got no output on that one

Re: Can't update php (CentOS 7. PHP 5.5 -> 7.2)

So you have a manually install php from sources.

You can't use "yum update", but have to "yum install php...."
You also have to remove binary in /usr/local

Re: Can't update php (CentOS 7. PHP 5.5 -> 7.2)

Obviously something is wrong in your configuration, as php packages are there

Check for "exclude" directives in yum.conf

Nothing is excluding as far as I can see:

bugtracker_url=bugs.centos org/set_project.php?project_id=23&ref=bugs.centos org/bug_report_page.php?category=yum

If troubleshooting is too difficult like this, I can check with a local person here to see if they can figure it out.
