Allegedly a server upgrade to CentOS 7

I had been running a few Centos 6 servers just past their EOL (30th November 2020) and it was time to kick in to action a plan I had been working on when I realised EOL was on my doorstep.

PHP version on Apache Centos 7

I need to set the default php-version of a subscription to php7.3.  The current server php version is PHP 7.1.33 (cli) (built: Oct 25 2019 11:33:58) ( NTS ).

Using a shell program (I used Terminal) from the home directory I ran:

export PATH=/opt/plesk/php/7.3/bin:$PATH;

centos 6 use

service httpd restart

centos 7 use

Updating MYSQL 5.5 -> 5.7

To add ejabberd and run MYSQL to the server I needed to update the server version of mysql from 5.5 to 5.7.  Fortunately, there are great instructions on the Plesk support page regarding how to achieve this outcome.
