In this tutorial, I will show you how to install PHP 8 on your Ubuntu server.
Make sure your server is having the latest packages by running the command.
apt update && apt upgrade -y
Install the below packages
apt -y install lsb-release apt-transport-https ca-certificates wget
The latest PHP packages are available in the Ondřej Surý PPA repository.
Add the repository to your system.
Hit enter key when prompted to add the repository.
Install PHP 8
Next, update the system repositories to start using the PPA
apt install php8.0
I have apache installed on my server, so I can verify PHP 8 installation in PHP sample file.
echo "<?php phpinfo();" > /var/www/html/info.php
Now open in browser http:/your-IP/info.php
That’s all, you have successfully installed PHP 8 on your Ubuntu server.
