PHP 5.6 is out. I’m testing my simple Yii 2 project and for the moments it works like a charm. I had to download xdebug from pecl.php.net/package/xdebug instead of xdebug.org as I was unable to find a version for php5.6.
I’ll post news if something will not work.
In order to get composer working I had to download the cacert.pem file from http://curl.haxx.se/ and set up the openssl.cafile=all\path\long\cacert.pem
Now I am solving a dilemma. My old project (Yii 1.1.16) is running on PHP 5.2.6 and as we are upgrading our server, I want to use a newer PHP version. I want my server to be able to run Yii1 and Yii2 projects so I need at least PHP 5.4. But can I use 5.5 or 5.6? Will both Yii1 and Yii2 be compatible with mentioned versions? Or is it just up to me?
Generally I want to use the most up-to-date version of PHP (Apache and Mysql) that will work well.
