Back on ChunkHost using a second VPS I created awhile back to migrate from one I am (now) seriously overpaying for. $14/month was a fantastic VPS price when I started using it back in 08/09 but that same build is now something like $1.95/month and they're still charging me $14. ANYWAY, I'd built out a way beefier one for the same $14 but ran into Ubuntu upgrade issues after my snapshot restore. Like, six times, so built a new one to just migrate everything to six months ago or so and still haven't done that. So I'm using it in the interim for NEWTONKANSAS.US which is great news! Unfortunately a block-upgrade of Koken disallowed the deletion pictures from the online library (and the forums were NOT helpful). You know what was helpful? Koken support! I turned in a ticket and with the patience of a saint, he got it working.
There were several packages I had to install/upgrade, none of them under the default repository. Which I had to jump through hoops even to add the software which adds the repositories:
apt-file search add-apt-repository
apt-get install software-properties-common
I then took the opportunity to uninstall php7.0 before installing php7.1:
apt-get install php7.1-readline php7.1-opcache php7.1-json php7.1-mcrypt php7.1-mysql php7.1-fpm php7.1-cli php7.1-common libapache2-mod-php7.1 php7.1-curl
Then lastly, UTF-8
apt-get install php-patchwork-utf8
spt-get install php7.1-xml
a2enmod proxy_fcgi setenvif
service apache2 restart
And before everything would work, I vi'd apache2.conf and added/edited:
AddDefaultCharset UTF-8 to the # Global configuration, and
default_charset = "utf8" to php.ini.
Koken now has its own tag :/
