    On my server I’m still with the issue of having the wrong CLI version as it still show an old version not installed but apache uses the correct version. I need to find out how to have the correct CLI because some console applications need the correct version. The steps above will not help as it only changes the version used by apache. Any help on this? Thanks

    This command doesn’t work (shows php cli ini):

    php –ini | grep “Loaded Configuration File”

      If you are looking for the PHP-Apache config file, then it can be found in: /etc/php/PHP-VERSION/apache2/ directory (On Ubuntu/Debian).

      We will find a way of locating this using a simple command and let you know.
