  5. Build and install PHP:

    • Run the "make" command to build PHP from source.
    • Once the build process is complete, run "make install" to install PHP on the system.
  6. Configure Apache2 to use PHP:

    • Add the following lines to the end of the file:
      LoadModule php7_module /usr/lib64/apache2/
      AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
    • Save and close the file.
  7. Restart Apache2: Restart Apache2 to ensure the changes take effect by running "rcapache2 restart" or "systemctl restart apache2.service".
