Error after update on Softaculous

Hello - I have successfully installed IN 5.3.16 on shared hosting using Softaculous. System wide PHP version on this host is 7.2 but I changed PHP to 7.4 for IN install. Everything appear to be working. So far so good.

After a while I saw ‘update available’ in blue triangle. When I clicked ‘update’, it ended up in this error:
Composer detected issues in your platform: Your Composer dependencies require a PHP version “>= 7.4.0”.

I can’t seems to be find a solution to this problem. Any suggestion?

On a different note: What should be the disk space requirement for about 100 customers with no documents (only invoices)? The current host I am using has 10GB.

Thanks in advance.


You may want to temporarily setup a phpinfo page to confirm the PHP version.

That should be more than enough.

Thanks for the quick response.

When I run php -v from IN folder I see this:
PHP 7.4.23 (cli) (built: Sep 2 2021 13:47:56) ( NTS )

When I run the same command from my root folder I see this:
PHP 7.2.34 (cli) (built: Jul 26 2021 15:46:16) ( NTS )

I think IN is using 7.2 when it does the update. Therefore, it is complaining about php. Thoughts?

That’s the CLI version, there may be a different web version which a phpinfo page would show.

Here’s the result of phpinfo page:

PHP Version 7.2.34

How do I change this to 7.4?

I have figured it out. I was able to change web php version using .htaccess file.

Now, to my other question on disk space. Have some suggestion on disk space?

That should be more than enough space.

Thanks again for your quick reply. Very much appreciated.
