I am trying to upgrade my PHP version from 5.5 to 5.6 so I can get Laravel working. So I followed the instructions from here but instead of adding this repository:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php5-5.6
I added this:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php5
anything else didn't work. Afterwards I installed PHP and to test the version I did this:
which gave me this:
however when I navigate to the server in my browser phpinfo() showed this:
PHP Version 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.20
Why is that happening, why isn't Apache loading the new version?
Also, in my /etc folder I have two php folders one is: /etc/php5 (which I think contains php5.5) and another called: /etc/php (which I think contains php5.6).
