I recently upgraded Ubuntu to a fresh install along with EHCP Force and mostly very happy.
But i am finding that much of my old (and a lot of new) software is not compatible with PHP 7 (7.2)
So my question is: Is there a work around for PHP 5 dependant software and PHP Extensions.
One thought was to have two instances of PHP running side by side.
Another was: is there some kind of conversion that could be automatically applied to the old PHP software.

I really don't with to go back to older versions of Ubuntu as i found almost all of them unstable with the exception of 12.04
and as it seams many aren't shifting to PHP 7
Any thoughts or better still ... any solutions.

The only solution is to use Ubuntu 14.04 or possibly Debian 8.  EHCP Force Edition should work on both without issues.
