The default PHP version in the docker Shopware installation is PHP 7.4. If you want to update the PHP version to 8 and above, please follow the following instructions.

 

 

Step 1: Update .psh.yaml.dist file

Please find the `.psh.yaml.dist` file in the root folder. Inside the file there is a variable `DOCKER_IMAGE_PHP_VERSION`, currently the variable value is 7.4, you have to change this value to 8.1
