I have a Linux Mint 19 setup that's running Apache2 and two version of PHP-FPM:

  • 7.1
  • 7.2

I got my 7.1 site up and running but now I'm trying to get my other site to run on php7.2 but it's not working and I'm not sure how to resolve. It's loading PHP7.1 despite the configuration I've added.

Site .htaccess file looks like this:

AddHandler php72-fcgi .php

And my vhost:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName proj2.local
    DocumentRoot /var/www/proj2

    <Directory /var/www/proj2>
        # This is to forward all PHP to php-fpm.
        <FilesMatch \.php$>
            SetHandler "proxy:fcgi://"
            SetHandler application/x-httpd-php

        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All

And my www.conf has only one change in it (from default):

listen =

I ran after the changes:

$ sudo service apache2 restart
$ sudo service php7.2-fpm restart

I created a info.php in proj2 directory and it displays information for PHP7.1. Why is it pointing to PHP7.1 and not PHP7.2?
