PHP 7.0.6 for Jessie

On April 29th 2016, the PHP group published PHP 7.0.6.

This is a security release. Several security bugs were fixed in this release, including CVE-2016-3078 and CVE-2016-3074. All PHP 7.0 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

Packages of PHP 7.0.6 are now available for Debian 8 “Jessie” on amd64 and i386 architectures.

Please note that :

  • PHP 7 and PHP 5 from Jessie are now co-installable on the same machine
  • Packages of the following PECL extensions are now available : APCu, APCu_bc, geoip, igbinary, imagick, memcached, mongodb, msgpack, redis and xdebug. Careful, PHP 7 support from some of them is still very young.
  • The thread-safe version of all these packages will be published soon.

Thanks for the update.
However it seems that after the update my OwnCloud website stopped to work. Some URLs give a “path not found” error.
I am still investigating the issue and I don’t see any direct relation with PHP7…

As anyone experience a problem with URL rewriting or access path issues?


Thanks @Thomas!
Worked perfectly here.
I searched on Google yesterday but nothing came out…
I was planning to work on it again today, but you saved me a lot of time.
Also, doing CLI from New-Zealand to my VPS server in France is quite unnerving at time because of the network latency.
Have a great day,

We see following error when using the libapache2-mod-php7.0 package:

[Thu May 12 12:13:49.985661 2016] [core:notice] [pid 11687] AH00052: child pid 12338 exit signal Aborted (6)
*** Error in `/usr/sbin/apache2′: corrupted double-linked list: 0x00007fe2fe97c210 ***

Happens only occasionally. See also (that post is not from me)

Thanks for your work!

Great job.

A plan to include the last version of pear ? Currently, it’s broken with PHP 7 :

# pecl install stats
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘new’ (T_NEW) in /usr/share/php/PEAR/Frontend.php on line 91

phpdismod (maybe also phpenmod – not checked) not working. I’ve tried to disable xdebug via “sudo phpdismod -s cli xdebug”. but the symlink from /etc/php/7.0/cli/conf.d/20-xdebug.ini to /etc/php/mods-available/xdebug.ini isn’t removed

Since upgrading to php 7.0.6 I see memory issues.
The committed memory in linux is increasing all the time.
I’m checking this with “cat /proc/meminfo | grep Committed_AS”
To see this bug, it’s important to not restart php-fpm and to have a high max request count in your php process pool (pm.max_requests). Each time the php child process is quitting, this memory is of course released.
But if those child processes get multiple thousands of requests the committed memory is steadily increasing.
