In this tutorial we will see how to install PHP version 7.3 in Ubuntu 18.04. Currently Ubuntu 18.04 support PHP version 7.2 officially in their repository. There are some situation we are required to install version 7.3.x. For example WordPress latest version required PHP 7.3 or above.
Developer Ondřej Surý maintain’s the unsupported versions of PHP in Launchpad. Let’s thanks for his work.
