In this tutorial I show you how to install php7 for opensuse leap 42.1 in terminal. This method should also work with other installs of opensuse but may not work for all versions. The commands are listed below.

su – #grants root privileges for entire session
zypper update #updates zypper installer
zypper in php7 php7-mysql #installs php7
a2enmod php7 #enables php7 module in apache2
cd /srv/www/htdocs #gets you to your websites home directory

gedit index.php #edits index.php
systemctl restart apache2 #restarts apache2
