To install Opigno with Nginx and PHP 7.2-FPM support, read the post below:

With both tutorials, you will have to update step 3 (Installing PHP) to use PHP 7.2  / PHP 7.2-FPM. Replace the 7.1 with 7.2 and installed. Use the same modules, except php7.1-mcrypt. PHP 7.2 does not support mcrypt. so remove it from the line.
