Steps to take to effectively increase PHP requirements in Piwik:

Follows up: #8156

@tsteur commented on September 12th 2016 Member

increase requirements in source code: https://github.com/piwik/piwik/blob/master/core/testMinimumPhpVersion.php

is done. We need to decide if we require at least 5.5.0 or maybe a little higher version such as 5.5.9 . Not sure if there are some weird problems etc in 5.5.0 or 5.5.1 ...

Drupal 8 (https://www.drupal.org/docs/7/system-requirements/overview and https://www.drupal.org/node/2508231 ) and Symfony (http://symfony.com/doc/current/reference/requirements.html ) require PHP 5.5.9 so it might be a good idea to directly require 5.5.9 as well. Gives us the possibility to use some Symfony components eventually etc

ping @mattab @sgiehl any thoughts?

Other projects used PHP 5.5.9 for new requirement, as well. So guess that should be fine.
Examples:

Awesome. Seeing Guzzle and the AWS SDK require 5.5.9 as well. Guzzle might be interesting for us to use eventually.
@matt can you confirm re 5.5.9 re usage of Piwik etc?

5.5.9 :+1:
