This will be a truncated example so if you want the details please refer to that post. This post was also inspired by Lorna Mitchell in her post http://www.lornajane.net/posts/2016/php-7-0-and-5-6-on-ubuntu which she shows how to add ppa repository for multiple php versions, though this a good and quick way, compiling your own PHP you can compile different versions and run these at the same without having to switch and also it is good the learn to compile software ourselves as this gives us control how it is compiled and installed, it is relatively quick as this once learned can be done in 10 minutes and if you write a bash script can be automated too.  Read More ...

This bug does not affect the desktop version of this OS, only if installed on server (minimal install).  Read More ...
