I'm trying to install php55 (or later) for my lan-server, but I can't seem to find a package that doesn't require internet to install...
(installation fails since I have no internet)
Where is there a reliable source for an offline installer??
On your offline machine run:
sudo apt-get install php5 --print-uris -y | grep -o http.*.deb
it will print all necessary stuff that are match to your running Ubuntu with all dependencies etc which you need to download. download all them at a machine with Internet connection.
Then move them to your offline machine in this path:
After all run:
sudo apt-get install php5
If your ubuntu machine sources have never been updated so it will not work for you. then try using an standalone utility like
Both php5 and php7 are available for Linux.
In general, you should first download the package and then install it with
sudo dpkg --install package.deb
If there are multiple packages, e.g. because you need dependencies, you have to install them one by one. The concrete link to your package depends on which exact version you would like to use and whether you have a 32 or 64 bit system. A list of packages that are likely to fit is here: http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/php5/
If you run
sudo apt --print-uris install php on another 14.04,
--print-uris will show the concrete uris to the packages you need to download and install.

Visit the official Ubuntu (trusty) Download Page for php5_5.5.9+dfsg-1ubuntu4.21_all.deb webpage, and download the php5_5.5.9+dfsg-1ubuntu4.21_all.deb file. Double-click the file you downloaded to open it for installation in the Ubuntu Software Center, or open the terminal, change directories using
cd to the directory containing the .deb file you downloaded and install it using this command:
sudo dpkg -i php5_5.5.9+dfsg-1ubuntu4.21_all.deb
