PHP 7.0.0 Final and EasyEngine

What would be the procedure for updating via stack from php 5.6 to 7.0 (or even a new installation with 7.0.0 from the get go)? Is such thing possible as of yet?

Thank you!

You can wait for it to be built into EE or you can install using the following:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php-7.0

Remove Php5 and install Php7

sudo apt-get update && apt-get purge php5-fpm && apt-get --purge autoremove && apt-get install php7.0-fpm php7.0-mysql

I HAVE NOT tried this! This may delete your config! Please do not use until someone from EE chimes in.

ADMIN: as a new user I could not post the link this came from, as a new user I was only “allowed 2 links per post” - but I only posted one link. Thank this is because the link expands to a preview containing many small links (author, date, etc). Please fix! :slight_smile:

I tried the above solution . PHP upgrades to 7.0 but the ee script fails to create a new website.

Thank you both for taking the time to reply.

I guess it is best to wait for an EE update, otherwise it might “frak-up” EE scritps.

Again, thank you both.

It seems a bit quiet around support of PHP 7 in Easy Engine. Any news on this?

same for me

There are several weeks since PHP7 support has been added to EE.

PHP 7 works with ee… just check the blog on and you will find instructions on how to use it.
