I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 through a pre-built vagrant box. The intent of the vagrant box is to operate as a LAMP stack, so it has PHP out of the box.
Running php -v returns this:
PHP 5.6.14-1+deb.sury.org~trusty+1 (cli)
Running which php returns this:
I'm trying to get to the latest stable build of PHP 5.6.x which is 5.6.28. From my understanding, if PHP was installed through APT package manager then I should just be able to run apt-get update however I'm guessing that PHP was configured on this vagrant box in a way that prevents that. I tried searching for a different package that might be suitable by using apt-cache search however nothing stands out.
I see that I can download the PHP release I want from http://php.net/downloads.php however that seems unorthodox when I'm accustom to updating through APT package manager. Do I need to remove whatever PHP version is currently installed and reinstall through APT? Thanks.
