Subject: [DNG] PHP question

I've been running Devuan on my break even public facing webhosting
system for several years.  I've been using ISPConfig and the debian
perfect server instructions with adjustments for Devuan.  I'm up to
Devuan Beowulf at the moment and trying to go to chimaera so that I can
get PHP 7.4 support.  I'm happy to build a new server and migrate sites
from Beowulf to Chimaera except that PHP 7.4 goes end of life at the end
of November of this year.  The current versions PHP are 8.0 and 8.1.

Using the instructions at packages.sury.org, I am able to add the other
versions of PHP except for PHPN.n-fpm due to a (what seems to be a
completely unnecessary) dependence upon systemd.

I would love to keep running Devuan.  It runs way better than anything
systemd based.  Is there a workaround for this limitation?  I've tried
installing the package from chimaera, but it's a couple of minor
revisions behind sury.org. It also seems to need a version of libc6
greater than or equal to x.xx.

As a web hoster I need to be able to deploy multiple versions of PHP and
I don't see very advanced support for it in Devuan. Developers need to
test PHP 8 as it's different enough to cause trouble for apps written
intending to run on version 7.4
