I've pushed up today a container using PHP 5.6 for those that want to use it.
I'd greatly appreciate some feedback as to how that works out for people, as we'll move to it by default if the feedback is generally good for the 1.8.3 release.
To use these, ensure you are already running 1.8.2 release, and then simply edit the
image: lines in your
docker-compose.yml (or variant) file, and append
_5.6 for both the
cms-xmr containers. The
cms-db container is unchanged)
So for example:
config.env file, and add lines as follows to the end:
That will configure a 4G limit.
docker-compose up -d should switch your PHP version. If you hit issues, removing the
_5.6 from both
image: lines, and then
docker-compose up -d should switch you back again.
Please can you also keep an eye on your daily automated backups using this version. It should generate a
latest.sql.gz file each day as before, and also a
previous.sql.gz file, only rotating them if the backup is successful. That addresses the following issue:
We are actively testing for PHP 7, but it's taking longer than we'd hoped it would, hence this interim solution.
