Hi,
When I run the phpinfo script through the localhost/phpinfo.php it tells me that i am using 7.1.11 but when i type php --version at the cmd line it tells me that i am using 5.6.21. I am trying to install symfony 4 and this 5.6.21 seems to be a problem. Can anyone advise?

cheers

php --version will only give you the correct anser if you are in the php bin folder, otherwise it can be possible that another php installation which adds its folders to the windows PATH variable will answer that request,
