I have been working with a test moodle site for the last few months, and have been given the go ahead to use it as our primary system.
This was installed on Ubuntu 14.04LTS using PHP 5 etc.
I am now building our prod server and have noticed that Ubuntu16.04 LTS with PHP 7 is now available and given the extended support time and interested in using it.
The only problem is, the usual steps to setup the server etc for moodle are all PHP 5 installs for example (from intall guide):
sudo apt-get install graphviz aspell php5-pspell php5-curl php5-gd php5-intl php5-mysql php5-xmlrpc php5-ldap clamav
Do i just replace the php5x with php7x? Or is there an easier way?
I'd like to use the latest stable versions of both Ubuntu and Moodle (test first of course), but maybe I should just stick with what I know Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for now.
Any advice on using\installing on 16.04LTS
