I'm trying to setup a OwnCloud Server v9 for my freelancing purpose.
SPECS: - CentOS 7 - nginx - php
I'm a little bit confused. I can find only the info about the PHP Version 5.5 in the ownCloud 9.0 Server Administration Manual. It states following: However, it is highly recommended to upgrade to PHP 5.5+ for best security and performance.
But this seems outdated to me. The current state (April 2016) is:
php 5.5, Active Support Until, 10 Jul 2015, Security Support Until, 10 Jul 2016
php 5.6, Active Support Until, 31 Dec 2016, Security Support Until, 31 Dec 2018
PHP: CentOS 7 comes with php 5.4.16-36.el7_1 via yum. This seems dangerous to me regarding security, leaks, etc. because it's outdated.
1) Is it better to use the php-5.6.20.tar.bz2 from php.net/downloads.php#v5.6.20
2) Will it update itself for new security-fixes via „yum update“
nginx: CentOS 7 comes with nginx 1.6.3-8.el7 via yum. Is it safe to install 1.6.x regarding security, leaks, etc. On the official Website I've found stable version nginx-1.8.1
3) Which nginx-version should I choose?
Thank you for your help, regards Hendrik
