Php7 Installation with Php5 on Ubuntu

Hi Folks,

I have one ubuntu 14.04 server with Php5 installed and have application hosted on that server.

Now we wanted to install Php7 without removing php5 (in co-existance with Php5). Is it possible. If yes, can someone know me how to install Php7 in co-existance with Php5 on Ubuntu server.

It may be possible, but I definitely recommend against it. You will either wreak havoc on your apt setup which will bite you at a later date, or have manually compiled php which you will most likely not keep up to date.
