Does Quickbox support Debian 9 (Stretch)?


#1

Just a quick question:
1/ Can I install Quickbox on Debian 9?
2/ Can I update from Debian 8 to 9 after installing quickbox?

I think the difference is Debian 8 use PHP 5 while Debian 9 use PHP 7.

Try it and let us know. I honestly have no idea and I doubt anyone else does either given that it’s not officially out yet.

Debian 8.7 with PHP 7.0.15 works.

Furthermore quickbox add the dotdeb.org repo for PHP 7.
See: https://github.com/QuickBox/quickbox_setup/blob/b57a7f5d1d95df63b0412b3f64b3dc14c164ac23/quickbox-setup

# package and repo addition (silently add php7) _add respo sources_ (12)
function _repos() {
   apt-get install -y software-properties-common >>"${OUTTO}" 2>&1
  apt-get -y install lsb-release sudo >>"${OUTTO}" 2>&1
  if [[ $DISTRO == Ubuntu ]]; then
    LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php -y >>"${OUTTO}" 2>&1;
  fi

  if [[ $DISTRO == Debian ]]; then
    echo "deb http://packages.dotdeb.org $(lsb_release -sc) all" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dotdeb-php7-    $(lsb_release -sc).list
    echo "deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org $(lsb_release -sc) all" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dotdeb-    php7-$(lsb_release -sc).list
    wget -q https://www.dotdeb.org/dotdeb.gpg
    sudo apt-key add dotdeb.gpg >> /dev/null 2>&1
  fi

}

Thank you. I thought Quickbox use PHP 5 on Debian 8/Ubuntu 15 but after reading the changelog it seems Quickbox uses PHP 7 throughout. Then it should be alright to upgrade to Debian 9.
