I install laravel 5.8 on new Ubuntu 16 instance under Digital Ocean. I need to install php 7.2 and for this I run commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get remove php7.0 sudo apt-get install php7.2
I was very surprosed that I found php 7.3:
# php -v PHP 7.3.5-1+ubuntu16.04.1+deb.sury.org+1 (cli) (built: May 3 2019 10:00:05) ( NTS ) Copyright (c) 1997-2018 The PHP Group Zend Engine v3.3.5, Copyright (c) 1998-2018 Zend Technologies with Zend OPcache v7.3.5-1+ubuntu16.04.1+deb.sury.org+1, Copyright (c) 1999-2018, by Zend Technologies
After that I got error on composer installing:
# composer install Loading composer repositories with package information Installing dependencies (including require-dev) from lock file [ErrorException] "continue" targeting switch is equivalent to "break". Did you mean to use "continue 2"?
Googling I found that it is some specific php7.3 error and I wonder which can be decision here? To downgrade to php7.2(If yes how better to make it?)
Or some other decision ?
