I am using Ubuntu 14.04. I have php installed. When I check phpinfo() from browser I get 5.5.9. But when I check from command line, I get 5.3.28. How can I make the command line php also to 5.5.9 ? i google and could find that this is because php cli is using a different php.ini file. Please guide me to upgrade this to 5.5.9. Thanks

  • Could you post the command line you executed and the whereis php output? – Lety Jul 18 '14 at 22:08

The php command line is located in php5-cli package (apt-cache policy php5-cli), but since 5.3.28 has never been a part of Ubuntu, so I suspect that you have a local (compiled from sources) installation of php CLI probably in /usr/local.

  • you are correct @oerdnj. I manually removed the php from /usr/local/bin and then installed php5-cli in the normal way. Now I have php 5.5.9 in command line and browser – GBRocks Jul 21 '14 at 7:01
