Recommended PHP version for up to date LEMP
I am currently running Debian 7.6, PHP 5.4.4, Wordpress 4.0 and Nginx 1.2.1.
Should I install PHP 5.5 or 5.6? Neither seems to be available in the Debian repositories yet.
I don’t particularly want to break anything and I am not interested in extra labor, but then again, my droplet will have a lot more stuff on it in several months and now would be the time to upgrade PHP without danger of screwing up too many things.
