NOTE: I have looked across multiple sources and the following question has been addressed however I'm yet to see a clear concise answer and seems to be avoided by Bitnami engineers, then topics are closed without explanation.
A solution that has also been offered on threads is to install with the latest LAMP, and I did, I used the latest LAMP stack available on Lightsail. Another common reply has been to migrate to another service, such as EC2, that is not an option as I am asking for the resolve based on the fact that I am using Lightsail.
I would like to update the PHP version of my Bitnami LAMP stack hosted on AWS Lightsail. I understand that I may need to update the entire LAMP stack. I recently installed the available Bitnami LAMP image available by default and its version is 5.6.33 hardly any modern PHP package will install with this version of PHP and so..
Ideally I need to retain my website hosting and simply upgrade what seems to be an old version of the LAMP stack.
