Hi there @kojanssen,

PHP 7 should now be standard on Ubuntu 16.04 - I would suggest running sudo apt-get install php which should install the new version of PHP for you.

Let me know how it goes!

  • Thanks for your reply!

    ‘sudo apt-get install php’ did only come up with php 5.6

    I managed to get php7 by:
    'sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php’
    'sudo apt-get update’
