Cannot upgrade PHP

Hi Guys,

So I use ubuntu 18.04, nextcloud 20.08 with Nginx, Redis and PHP 7.2. I’ve changed many things but it still doesnt use PHP 7.4 which is so annoying!

I log in via SSH, but i’m missing the piece where files point tot PHP 7.4 and NGinx starts to use it.

Does anyone have a step by step tutorial? Ive managed to break the update before and reverted back to 7.2. But I still want to upgrade.

Greetings Chris
