I updated PHP on my server, but WordPress doesn't recognize the update.
I’m trying to get WordPress to recognize and use PHP 7.0.33-5 I have installed on my server.
When I type
php -v on my server, I see the following:
PHP 7.0.33-5+ubuntuu14.04+deb.sury.org+1 (cli) (built: Mar 8 2019 10:07:09) ( NTS )
I’ve restarted my apache2 server after this, as well.
However, when I log into WordPress, I get a message telling me that…
WordPress has detected that your site is running on an insecure version of PHP.
Any ideas how I can get this working? It should be noted I don’t use Linux too often and not an expert at it.
