    Just a heads up...
    If you upgrade to PHP7 you are likely to run in to problems with MySQL.
    I got most of my problems to go away with these tricks.

    apt-get install php5-mysql
    Add extension=mysqli.so to php.ini
    Tags: Could not connect to MySQL, mysqli is missing, phpmyadmin doesn't work, Application Instantiation Error!, The mysqli|mysql extension is missing.

    It was all ready installed.
    Reason for the problems is that so much of PHP code is for v.5. Most are in the form php5-xxx and PHP7 dropped pretty much ALL support for backward compatibility.
