Here is a simple guide to installing or upgrading to PHP 8.2 on MacOS with Homebrew.

1. Update Homebrew

It's good to make sure Homebrew itself is up to date before we install anything else. To do that we'll run:

brew update

2. Install PHP 8.2

Next, we'll install PHP.

brew tap shivammathur/php
brew install shivammathur/php/php@8.2

3. Switch to the new version

Lastly, we'll want to tell our machine which version to use:

brew link --overwrite --force php@8.2

The repo for this install is available here: github.com/shivammathur/homebrew-php

4. Verify

To verify our install, open a new terminal window and run:

php -v

That should show you running php 8.2 ๐Ÿฅณ
