My server is running debian 7 and I have php 5.4.45 installed via apt-get. I need php 5.6 for some other service to run properly, but unfortunately I couldn't find any way to install it via apt-get. I've downloaded, compiled and installed php 5.6 and
php -v shows:
PHP 5.6.29 (cli)
Unfortunately, since the version installed via apt-get is still accessible via
php5 command, apache uses the old 5.4.45. I cannot get rid of this, because there are other things depending on it that I don't want to lose.
I've read other answers, but I didn't find
httpd config files anywhere on my device.
Another thing, how can I "tell" apt-get or any other package manager, that I've installed newer version of php manually, so that it doesn't require me to download older version, just to satisfy the dependence. Is it that the name is incorrect, do I need to link it somewhere? If there is some article, that explains it, please link it.
