ALL IN ONE CODE

sudo apt update && apt upgrade -y
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php
sudo apt update

sudo apt-get install -y php8.2-cli php8.2-common php8.2-fpm php8.2-mysql php8.2-zip php8.2-gd php8.2-mbstring php8.2-curl php8.2-xml php8.2-bcmath php8.2-pgsql

1. Run system updates

The first thing to do in a new system is to update our repositories in order to make them up to date. Run upgrade command also.

sudo apt update && apt upgrade -y

2. Add Ondrej sury PPA repository

To run PHP 8.2 on Ubuntu 22.04, we need to add Ondrej sury PPA into our system. This is the maintainer of the PHP repository at the moment. This PPA is not currently checked so installing from it will not be guaranteed 100% results.

To add this PPA use the following command on our terminal.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php

After installation is complete we need to update the repositories again for the changes to take effect.

sudo apt update

3. Install PHP 8.2 on Ubuntu 22.04

We should now be able to install PHP 8.2 on Ubuntu 22.04 Linux machine. The commands to run are as shared below:

sudo apt install php8.2 -y

Check for the currently active version of PHP with the following command:

php --version

4. Install PHP 8.2 Extensions

Besides PHP itself, you will likely want to install some additional PHP modules. You can use this command to install additional modules, replacing PACKAGE_NAME with the package you wish to install:

sudo apt-get install php8.2-PACKAGE_NAME

You can also install more than one package at a time. Here are a few suggestions of the most common modules you will most likely want to install:

sudo apt-get install -y php8.2-cli php8.2-common php8.2-fpm php8.2-mysql php8.2-zip php8.2-gd php8.2-mbstring php8.2-curl php8.2-xml php8.2-bcmath php8.2-pgsql

This command will install the following modules:

  • php8.2-cli – command interpreter, useful for testing PHP scripts from a shell or performing general shell scripting tasks
  • php8.2-common – documentation, examples, and common modules for PHP
  • php8.2-mysql – for working with MySQL databases
  • php8.2-zip – for working with compressed files
  • php8.2-gd – for working with images
  • php8.2-mbstring – used to manage non-ASCII strings
  • php8.2-curl – lets you make HTTP requests in PHP
  • php8.2-xml – for working with XML data
  • php8.2-bcmath – used when working with precision floats
