PHP Upgrade for TimeTrex

Post by jmccorison » Fri Jan 06, 2017 3:35 pm

The new version of TimeTrex requires that I upgrade my version of php. It is currently at 5.2.6. Is there a straightforward method to upgrade the TimeTrex instance of php?

This is on Mac OS X. The TimeTrex version is in /Applications/TimeTrex/php, but the normal php install tools want to put it in more generic locations.

If you installed TimeTrex from the legacy MAC OSX installer (which was discontinued since Apple has exited the server market), unfortunately there is not an easy way to upgrade the PHP version. You would need to install a generic web service stack (ie: https://bitnami.com/stack/mapp) then install TimeTrex from the .ZIP file so it uses that instead, and manually migrate your database over to it. It can be a quite involved and complex process even for experienced IT professionals.

Instead you may want to consider switching TimeTrex to a different operating system such as Windows or Linux that would be much easier to install/maintain, or alternatively if eligible you could always consider using our free cloud service: http://www.timetrex.com/download.php

I had stayed clear of the cloud version as we didn't have a really reliable internet connection. That has since change and the cloud version seems like the way to go. Guess it's migration time. Thanks for the input.
