PHP 5.5 @ Ubuntu 18.04

  • Hello,

    Is there any possibility to install PHP 5.5.x on Ubuntu 18.04 to work with phpswitcher module?

    Of course we're possibly talkiing about compiiling it out of official way, but maybe it is possible somehow?


    You could give a try in the following way:

    1. Edit /var/www/imscp/gui/plugins/PhpSwitcher/PhpCompiler/ and change

    1. #'5.5' => '5.5.38', # End of life: 21 July 2016 - Reached


    1. '5.5' => '5.5.38', # End of life: 21 July 2016 - Reached

    Then download and unpack PhpSwitcher Version 4.0.3 to somewhere on your computer or server

    Copy the contents of unpacked PhpSwitcher/PhpCompiler/php5.5 to /var/www/imscp/gui/plugins/PhpSwitcher/PhpCompiler/patches/5.5

    Try to compile. If it works, it works… If not try to figure out why.

    Btw I can imagine a lot of motivations on why Nuxwin didn't include version 5.5 in the latest PhpSwitcher Plugin
