Upgrade PHP 7.4 with Homebrew

David Carr

Development

    PHP 7.4 came out this week, so it's time to upgrade! 

    On Mac, Homebrew makes the whole process painless.

    First, run an update on Homebrew:

    brew update

    You will see any tabs available if you've updated recently then its likely you'll only see:

    Updated 1 tap (homebrew/core).
    ==> New Formulae
    php@7.3

    Next upgrade PHP:

    brew upgrade php

    This will upgrade PHP to the latest version, which at this moment is PHP 7.4

    To verify your PHP version run:

    php -v

    Then you should see:

    PHP 7.4.0 (cli) (built: Nov 29 2019 16:18:44) ( NTS )
    Copyright (c) The PHP Group
    Zend Engine v3.4.0, Copyright (c) Zend Technologies
        with Zend OPcache v7.4.0, Copyright (c), by Zend Technologies

    That's all there is to it!
