Hello @bejbi,

We're tentatively expecting to publish PHP version 7.3 with EasyApache 4 in 2019 around the time cPanel & WHM version 80 is released. You can follow the feature request for updates:

Thanks!

Update 12/19/2018: Revised tentative publication time frame.

That's a really long time for repackaging a new PHP version, especially taking into account the RC versions has been out for ages, so the work could have started a lot earlier than the official release of PHP, and then simply bump the versions and rerun your test suite again.

I'd really suggest that this approach is used for future versions.
CloudLinux have already made packages for their alt-php, maybe you can ask them for help?

Hello Everyone,

Good news! The PHP 7.3 RPM is tentatively planned for publication as part of tomorrow's EasyApache 4 maintenance release. You will be able to install it from the command line with the yum install ea-php73 command, but it won't appear as option in the WHM >> EasyApache 4 build profiles until a later date.

I'll update this thread again once the EA4 maintenance release is published.

Thank you.
