My intention is to enable PHP5 on Xenial 16.04 for an Apache2-related project
I have compiled PHP v5.6 from official source and am currently trying to install package libapache2-mod-php5.6 using https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/xenial/amd64/libapache2-mod-php5.6/5.6.18+dfsg-4ubuntu1
After attempting to resolve dependencies, I end up with php5.6-common from https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/xenial/amd64/php5.6-common/5.6.18+dfsg-4ubuntu1 depending on php-common, however, after installing said php-common via apt, I keep getting following message:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: php5.6-common : Depends: php-common (>= 18~) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Do I also need some outdated version of php-common?
Should I also build libapache2-mod-php5.6 from source (and if so, are there any code packages suited to compile properly on Xenial)?
