I work out of /usr/local/src for anything I'm compiling from source so adjust to suit your own setup.
Grab yourself the latest version available on the php.net website using wget in the current directory.
Once you have finished downloading you need to gunzip and untar:
sudo gunzip php-7.0.1.tar.gz
sudo tar -xvf php-7.0.1.tar
To keep track of what configuration I compiled so...
