The downside of upgrading php5 -> php7 is.. some apps can break. Still, there are some workarounds to make them work with php7 (most of cases). check if you have libapache2-mod-php7.0 installed. remove/purge any other previous versions of this package and restart apache2.
I had both installed:
# dpkg --get-selections |grep libapache2-mod-php
# egrep -rs php5 /etc/apache2/after that, check if there is still something there with: # egrep -rs php5 /etc/apache2/
/etc/apache2/mods-available/php7.0.load:# Conflicts: php5
/etc/apache2/mods-available/php5.load:LoadModule php5_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp5.so
It didn't seem necessary to uninstall any php5, so I did this:
# a2dismod php5
# a2enmod php7.0
# systemctl restart apache2
Now apache2 is using php7.0, and the apps that I checked all seem to work. I re-installed roundcube and installed the missing dependency php-net-idna2 ( https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=866895 ) and now roundcube works!
Just curious, should the upgrade to stretch have done this for me or is it known that this switch is to be done manually?
Thanks for the help!
also in hole system: dpkg -l | egrep php5 If so, repeat process of upgrade the packages, restart apache2 PS: Assuming your apps works with php7 cheers. x9pI thought I'd try a better webmail than squirrelmail, so I tried toinstall roundcube. After many hours I gave up (missing php pdo modules), purged it all, and then tried a non-debian package: rainloop. I spent may hours with it, trying to solve missing php curl modules.What had me going in circles in both cases was that php was telling methat the missing modules were in fact there.I finally realized that the php cli is v7.0, whereas apache2 runs runswith php5. There are all sorts of apache2 config files for php7 but apache2 is still using php5. php7 has the pdo and curl modules, but I think the php5 modules were uninstalled during the upgrade to stretch. I don't know if it is intentional that the apache2 environment didn't change to the newer php7? If it should be using php7, how do I go about forcing the change, and is there any downside to doing this?Regards, Rick
