I have server running centos 6, i recently upgraded the php on the server to version 5.5 and noticed that some of the scripts in laravel framework i use are breaking. i get this error
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'yield' (T_YIELD), expecting '(' in /var/www/vhosts/jpischolarship.com/httpdocs/laravel/helpers.php on line 563
After doing some research, i found that the framework i used has method called "yield" which is now a reserved keyword in php 5.5.
How do i downgrade my current php installation to previous version?
I have tried "
yum downgrade php" with no luck.
I get the following output
