okay so this took longer than expected. Spent 1h~1.5h trying to get nginx to talk with php-fpm when in the end it was SELinux that was the problem
so now I can run php files but I installed php 5.x, while nextcloud requires 7.x. Damn you, CentOS's packages :|
@urso maybe go for CR
@urso the rolling release of CentOS. https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR
@grosours yeah, I prefer not to have rolling release on a server. I'm fine with CentOS but to my knowledge I never had to setup a php project, hence the bumps in the road
I _almost_ switched to Ubuntu LTS, but things are alright now :)
@urso you have php7 in the vault https://archive.kernel.org/centos-vault/8.0.1905/AppStream/Source/SPackages/ . I think you should have a way to add such a repo in your repo list.
@grosours yeah, I managed to fix that shortly after I wrote that post, it's all good now :)
