Question

How to setup Apache2 with an PHP7 installation?

I followed a small guide on how to install PHP7 (http://www.zimuel.it/install-php-7/). The installation went successful but could someone give some advice on how to use PHP in combination with Apache (Setting up servers isn’t my thing haha)? I couldn’t find anything about how to setup PHP7 with Apache2 which makes sense since the official release is still a few months away. But I would like to do some testing with it :)

Hi Mike,

All DigitalOcean servers managed by ServerPilot have PHP 7 available by default. There’s nothing you need to customize, it’s part of the standard server configuration which uses Apache behind Nginx.

A quick search found this guide which should assist you in getting PHP 7 working with Apache on Ubuntu.
