Submitted by ravisagar on Mon, 05/16/2016 - 10:29

Often we encounter problems when hosting Drupal site on shared servers like webfaction. The PHP version that we used while development of the site is not there on the hosting server. If you are using webfaction then the steps below can be used to switch your site's PHP version.

Create a symlink to the version of php you want.

ln -s /home/php-cgi/php56.cgi php56.cgi

This symbolic link will work for webfaction. Check with your hosting provider the location of php56.cgi file path.

We went to Sagar Ratna on 31st Aug for lunch, Hemant Gupta was working with us as an Intern in our company. He is a B-Tech (CSE) 2nd year student. He worked on "Sparxsys Issue Tracker" which is an online tool for keeping track of Issues from various clients. He used PHP/MySQL and followed MVC architecture for building this system. Though we internally use JIRA for tracking our backlog and project management but we wanted to have a system for Client also. We have been using Mantis for client issues but it is not suitable for us and we wanted something more customizable for our process.
