[Edit: Just tried to roll back to the prior version of WebMail Lite but see there is only the current version available in the repository. It would be helpful to keep at least one prior version we could roll back to if needed.]

Just updated from the prior version of WebMail Lite and received this error:

Composer detected issues in your platform: Your Composer dependencies require a PHP version ">= 7.1.0". You are running 5.6.40-38+0~20201103.42+debian9~1.gbpb211e0.

The default PHP version for this machine is PHP 7.3.

Any assistance with how to proceed would be most appreciated.

update-alternatives --config php
There are 6 choices for the alternative php (providing /usr/bin/php).

Selection    Path                  Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
0            /usr/bin/php.default   100       auto mode
1            /usr/bin/php.default   100       manual mode
2            /usr/bin/php5          50        manual mode
3            /usr/bin/php5.6        56        manual mode
4            /usr/bin/php7.0        70        manual mode
* 5            /usr/bin/php7.3        73        manual mode
6            /usr/bin/php7.4        74        manual mode

Is my understanding correct that you were upgrading with "apt-get update" & "apt-get upgrade"?

That is correct. Actually using 'apt upgrade' to be 100% accurate.

Igor,

I'd edited my initial post with a WebMail repository suggestion and copied it below in case you missed it ... simply because you were so incredibly quick in reading the post.

OK that makes sense, have just updated the repository so v8.5.1 of the products is included as well.

I'm checking with the developers regarding the composer-related issue, will post back once there's a response.

Thanks so very much! I'm extremely impressed with you and Afterlogic!   

Just noted the prior version in the repository seconds before your post.

To be honest I've looked into a paid version of WebMail, but the limits on the number of accounts just doesn't work in my case as it's a personal, extended family server. Is there a way to show my support or make a donation?

I just spoke to the developers. As of 8.5.2, we're using v2 of Composer and it now performs platform-check, which can be disabled in Composer configuration:

Composer 2: Platform Check

Still it doesn't explain why your system reports running PHP 5.6 rather than 7. If you run php -v, or better yet, run the following PHP script from command line:

Code:
<?php echo PHP_VERSION;


- which version is reported there?

Well, we offer 5 users license as a personal-level offer. And each of those users can add any number of email accounts under their primary account, and that would still count as one user.

Sure, you can send a donation to paypal@afterlogic.com, or just make a post about our product in Facebook/Twitter, we'll gladly share one.

Here's what php -v returns:

Alright, let's try to follow the same approach the package installer uses. Somewhere under /usr/share/afterlogic directory, create a file, say, version.php with the following content:

Code:
<?php echo PHP_VERSION;


then run it as follows:

Code:
sudo -u www-data php /usr/share/afterlogic/version.php


What's the output in that case?

Igor,

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but here's the output:

sudo -u www-data php /usr/share/afterlogic/version.php
7.3.24-3+0~20201103.72+debian9~1.gbp945915

Did you get that error in console upon the upgrade, or in web browser when opening WebMail? If that's the latter, create /usr/share/afterlogic/info.php file with:

Code:
<?php phpinfo();


and open it in the browser, by appending /info.php to WebMail Lite URL. What version does it show there?

The error message was returned from the command line/console and was the result of running:

apt update -f

I've done some investigation into this.

From the CLI (Command Line Interface) I entered:

sudo -u www-data php -v
PHP 7.3.24-3+0~20201103.72+debian9~1.gbp945915 (cli)


Apache's default PHP version the version above as indicated by the '*' upon running update-'alternatives --config php' :

Selection    Path                  Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
0            /usr/bin/php.default   100       auto mode
1            /usr/bin/php.default   100       manual mode
2            /usr/bin/php5          50        manual mode
3            /usr/bin/php5.6        56        manual mode
4            /usr/bin/php7.0        70        manual mode
* 5            /usr/bin/php7.3        73        manual mode
6            /usr/bin/php7.4        74        manual mode


To verify the version of PHP being used I created the version.php as you suggested earlier to return the PHP version.

Keeping in mind WebMail was installed via apt and, thus, resides in the /usr/share/afterlogic directory.

Here is what I discovered:

1) When loading the version.php from any web/http directory, using a web browser, it returns:


7.3.24-3+0~20201103.72+debian9~1.gbp945915


2) However, when loaded from /usr/share/afterlogic/version.php with a URL such as this: https://domain.com/afterlogic/version.php we discover this:

5.6.40-38+0~20201103.42+debian9~1.gbpb211e0

So it appears the MailWeb install is doing it's job verifying the proper version of PHP is running.

Now I need to figure out how to get the default Apache version of PHP (v7.3) to run when using the /usr/share/afterlogic directory.

If you know off hand how to accomplish this, I'd love to know. I've taken a quick read and didn't find out how to do so just yet ... but I will.

Thanks so much for your assistance.

Interesting find indeed! As for webserver setup, WebMail Lite places Apache config file /etc/afterlogic/apache.conf, and I imagine that's where you'd need to set the correct PHP handler.

Also, since WebMail Lite can actually work just fine with PHP 5.6 (Dropbox integration aside), you can disable the check by commenting out or removing the following part of /usr/share/afterlogic/vendor/composer/platform_check.php file:

Code:
if (!(PHP_VERSION_ID >= 70100)) {
    $issues[] = 'Your Composer dependencies require a PHP version ">= 7.1.0". You are running ' . PHP_VERSION  .  '.';
}


Hope this helps. And I've asked the developers to research a more long-term solution, but for now this should do.
