How to update php version to at least 7.3 to be ready for NC20?

Hello @enoch85,

I am running a device based on Ubuntu 18.04 with php 7.2.
What is the recommended way to update php version?

You offer a job to do this in your shop.
What are the details of it?

Using packages from ppa:ondrej/php ?


btw. are you watching conference?

I am happily looking for answers from anyone not just Daniel :slight_smile:

Basically yes, that’s the right method.

Before anything, as always, if possible do a snapshot of the host, ackup the database and enable maintenance mode on Nextcloud so no clients communicate with the server during the process.

Yes I am! :slight_smile:

Yup, and and a bit more fixing with reinstalling everything that needs reinstalling. But Ondrej’s PPA is correct.

My NUC is offering me to upgrade Ubuntu 18.04 LTS to 20.04 LTS.

20.04 LTS comes with v7.4 (according to ).

Is it safe to upgrade OS? Has anybody done that?
