Topic: php-gd on 7.4 won't load due to issue with epel libraqm

I've followed the wizard, and did everything other than the yum update (I don't want to do the whole OS update right now), but did update all of the php packages several times over. I get no issues with the install, but at the end I get libgd won't load error because some symbol it wants in libraqm isn't defined. I'd just installed libraqm from the latest epel (7.11). Error below:

[root@red conf]# php --version
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'gd' (tried: /usr/lib64/php/modules/gd (/usr/lib64/php/modules/gd: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory), /usr/lib64/php/modules/gd.so (/lib64/libraqm.so.0: undefined symbol: hb_ft_font_set_load_flags)) in Unknown on line 0

Sorry, but I cannot support such old version
You really have to update
