Install PHP 7.3 on Debian 9

Debian 9 allows installing PHP 7.0 using apt, as I explained in this link (in Spanish).

In this post, I will go to explain how to install PHP 7.3, whose publication date (GA: General Availability) is  December 6, 2018.

Thus I will use the DPA (Debian Package Archive) available at , since the official version is not so updated.

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install apt-transport-https lsb-release ca-certificates
$ sudo wget -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/php.gpg
$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb $(lsb_release -sc) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/php.list'
$ sudo apt update

Below I check the packages available in this DPA

$ sudo apt search php7.3

To finish the work, I install the packages I need, including the nginx server

$ sudo apt install -y nginx php7.3 php7.3-common php7.3-cli php7.3-fpm php7.3-mysql php7.3-xml php7.3-curl php7.3-mbstring php7.3-zip

To verify that PHP 7.3 is installed

$ php -v
PHP 7.3.0RC4
