PHP versions 5.4, 5.5 and 5.6 supported
Hi, I’m proud to announce that starting today, testing and deploying your applications on various PHP versions has never been that easy!
Switching from a PHP version to another is a matter of a single line change in your application configuration file.
Platform.sh supports the following PHP versions:
Also, you can choose to enable and disable any PHP extensions that you want to use or not.
How to do?
Let’s say you want to test your application with a different PHP version.
Start by branching your environment to get a fresh new environment. Call this environment
If you are using the CLI, simply type:
$ platform environment:branch php-5-6
.platform.app.yaml file, simply change the type to:
Commit and push this change:
$ git add .platform.app.yaml $ git commit -m "Upgrade to PHP 5.6" $ git push
That’s it! Your new environment is now built with PHP 5.6.
You can confirm by SSH in the environment and type
php -v :
web@tfq54akunfoby-php-5-6--php:~$ php -v PHP 5.6.12-1~dotdeb+7.1 (cli) (built: Aug 8 2015 01:28:25)
Deploy the changes
Once you are sure everything works as expected, you can merge this change to deploy the parent environment with the new version.
With the CLI, it’s simply:
$ platform environment:merge
