    This is workaround fix based on discussed solutions at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1739804 by downloading the python36 EPEL yum rpm packages manually for install until EPEL reverses their premature removal of python36 packages. I downloaded the python36 EPEL yum packages for CentOS 7 (doesn't apply to CentOS 6) to local centminmod.com mirror so as to ensure it's available and installed via that centminmod.com local mirror.

    This should fix failed PHP 7.3 installs on Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 for initial install as well as centmin.sh menu option 5 PHP upgrades.
    • To update Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 code on your server, just run in SSH the command = cmupdate and then re-run centmin.sh menu option 5 to recompile PHP 7.3 specific versions i.e. 7.3.8 if you previously had PHP 7.3 fail.
    • If you have working PHP 7.3, then this bug doesn't apply as you installed at time when python36 EPEL yum package was available so only run cmupdate command but no need to recompile via centmin.sh menu option 5.
