Can't use PHP 7 after upgrade from PHP5

I installed new droplet with Ubuntu 14 x64 and LAMP.

Followed this tutorial to upgrade to PHP7

And when I visit phpinfo() I get that my php version is PHP Version 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.14

Why is that and how can I fix it?

Best Regards

Hi, to use PHP 7.0 on Ubuntu 14.04, you might try using ServerPilot to manage your droplet. ServerPilot installs multiple versions of PHP on your server and makes it easy to change the version.
