Upgrading from PHP 5.3.x to PHP 5.4 in Ubuntu 12.04

View more posts

For a new codebase I'm working on, I needed to upgrade to PHP 5.4
My local VM that I'm working within is running 5.3, so here are the steps I went through to get up and running:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php5-oldstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install php5
