AlmaLinux 9.3

Felt a little masochistic today, so did the below on my test box.

Installed AL 8.9, then worked on how to live update to 9.3. (About 7 trials)
Everything seems to work, except can't get PHP to build.

A true masochist indeed! Wish I had enough spare time to attempt such, but I wear quite a few hats, constantly switching roles throughout the day. I will have to begin dabbling in Alma-land before next spring, so I will have to do some ELevate simulations and might run a vanilla test VM just to get acclimated. Have you explored that route (clean install)?

Know what you mean, my 1st 2 attempts got messed up because I got distracted.

CWP still won't clean install on AL 9.x as of yet.
I tried messing with the install script, but keeps failing.

The only way to get there is a drawn out process, but I did document, as ELevate doesn't work to do it.
And the scripting to build PHP via CWP or manually like you can on 8 doesn't work.
