PHP 7.3 and 7.4 Woes and solution

So this weekend I have been doing some LibreNMS installs and have been having to change the default CentOS PHP version. If it is Centos7 PHP 7.3 is recommend and if it’s Centos 8 then PHP 7.4 is recommended. I have some pretty good tutorials on installing Librenms that I follow. They all mention the remi repository. However, on a few of these networks the remi repository has been unreachable. So I just can’t cut and paste from the tuorials I use.

So what is a person to do? Lots of mirrors are available at https://rpms.remirepo.net/. All you have to do is some substitution.
http://mirror.team-cymru.com/remi/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm

Done and Done. Hope this helps. You should be using mirrors anyway when it comes to remi. However, most tutorials reference remi because it’s easy.
