Akauting PHP Error


I’m trying to update the Akauting software. I’ve just run the upgrade command in my Ubuntu 18.04.

However, the following errors don’t allow the complete Akatung update:

“You can not upgrade to Akaunting 2.1 version because your PHP version is lower than 7.3.0. Please, ask your hosting company to upgrade your PHP.”


“The PHP CLI executable file is not working! Please, ask your hosting company to set PHP_BINARY or PHP_PATH environment variable correctly.”

How can I fix that? Thank you so much!
