Hello all. I need to run different versions of PHP in different directories. For example in var/www/html I’d need to run the standard PHP 7.x and in var/www/html/xxxx I’d need to run PHP 5.x.
There are quite a few strategies for this described online, and other hosting/vps services directly offering the built-in ability, but after a day of experimenting with these strategies on digitalocean droplets, I’ve found none that have worked on digitalocean droplets.
So, if anyone is running different versions of PHP on different directories in digitalocean, then please, would you share your methods?
