Nagios Log Server - Upgrading to PHP 7

Upgrading to PHP 7


If your company environment requires upgrading to PHP 7.x, please follow the commands below.

Must be using Nagios Log Server 2.1.6 or higher for PHP 7.4 support.

Before any major upgrade/update, ensure you have a full backup in place.

Example (NLS 2.1.7 and PHP 7.4):


yum install php php-mcrypt php-cli php-gd php-curl php-mysql php-ldap php-zip php-fileinfo
yum install http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm
yum install yum-utils
yum-config-manager --enable remi-php74
yum update
cd /tmp
rm -rf /tmp/nagioslogserver
wget https://assets.nagios.com/downloads/nagios-log-server/2/nagioslogserver-2.1.7.tar.gz
tar xzf nagioslogserver-2.1.7.tar.gz
cd nagioslogserver
./upgrade
systemctl restart httpd.service

Note: The reason you re-run the upgrade is to install the proper SourceGuardian loaders for your new version of PHP.
