Installing PHP 5.6

Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but here goes anyway: I'd like to install PHP V5.6 on Sparky. However, when I use the command

      apt-get install php5.6

I get messages about packages no longer required, and finally

     0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded

Any thoughts about how to proceed?


I am unfamiliar with php.  However it appears that php7 is the offered one in Debian Testing. php is at 5.6 in Debian stable  Sparky takes Testing and adds non-free components automatically and offers some tested selected ppa's that play well with Debian.  Testing is also named Stretch at this time.  Debian Stable is also named Jessie at this time. 

See in the Debian wiki the php page
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.


Thanks for this - looks like a promising lead.
