Step 1 : Install Latest EPEL Repository

If your server doesn’t have EPEL repo, then install this first:

sudo yum install

Step 2 : Install SoapClient

Run this command to install SoapClient:

Step 3 : Restart Webserver

We have successfully installed php-soap on our server. Now we have to restart the web server:

# Apache:
sudo systemctl restart httpd

# Nginx:
sudo systemctl restart nginx

Step 4 : Check SOAP is Installed

Run this command to confirm that SOAP is installed or not:

php -m | grep -i soap
