We use the Piwik Version 2.9.1 with Nginx & PHP 5.6 version installed on the CentOS Box. We are trying to upgrade the setups to 3.0.2 which needs PHP 7.X version (recommended). So my question here is, in-order to upgrade PHP on a CentOS Server the older version needs to be removed and newer version needs to installed.
I am wondering what are the things I need to keep in my mind in-order to upgrade to PHP 7.X on Piwik installed on CentOS Servers… Is it just a typical PHP upgarde or are there any special instructions for the upgrade?
Any thoughts folks… Thanks for the help
I have php 5.3.3 and have just installed php71 on CentOS 6 server.
but I too am not sure if this is enough on it’s own,
as I now have a php which is still 5.3 and a new php71 which is correct, but maybe not default.
do I need to uninstall php 5.3 first, before installing php71?
or do I need to configure piwik somewhere to use 71 rather than the base version?
I used the remi repo - is that OK?
but can’t see a php71-curl or php71-mysql - so a bit worried I do not have everything.
did you get these, or are they not rerally needed now
