How to verify PHP and MySQL version on NAS

Does anyone know if the newer ReadyNAS ship with PHP and MySQL installed?  And if so, how can you verify the version?  I saw a post online about PHP as follows:

 

Distro PHP Version
Ubuntu 12.04 5.3.10
Ubuntu 14.04 5.5.9
Ubuntu 16.04 7.0
CentOS 6 5.3.3
CentOS 7 5.4.16
Debian 7 5.4.45
Debian 8 5.6.20

 

It's my understanding that OS 6.6 was an upgrade to Debian 8 but I'm uncertain if the latest PHP and MySQL were part of that upgrade or not. 

 

Thanks!

-which php and which mysql returned nothing.

-find -iname "php" and find -iname "myqsl" found nothing

-dpkg --list did not include anything related to mysql or php

My 526X has neither PHP nor MySQL installed.

How did you verify it? Is there a guide or tutorial on how to install them? I presume it won't break anything such as the admin interface?

Thanks!

Got it so is there any how-to guides on installing the latest versions?  It seems everything in the App store is using much older version or in limbo since the upgrade to OS 6.6.

Not that I've seen.  It would be useful to have up-to-date apps to install these (or at least a how-to).

Exactly my point and I'm actuall surprised that's not the case.  Unfortunately, I'm not savvy enough to grab the source codes from GitHub and compile/port them over or I would create my own App for the store.  I can probably Google enough and fumble through a manual installation but even then I may have only limited success.  Smiley Sad  Is there a process to make a recommendation to Netgear to bundle this with the next update?

 Maybe post in the idea exchange?  They clearly are tracking what's posted there.

Re: How to verify PHP and MySQL version on NAS

Anyone feeling luck?  A quick search on how to install it turns this link up:  http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/installing-php-7-on-debian-linux-8-jessie-wheezy-using-apt-get/

 

I found this interesting off that link:

 

PHP 7 is a dynamic scripting langauge for delivering applications. You can get 2x faster performance and 50% better memory consumption than PHP 5.6, allowing you to serve more concurrent users without adding any hardware. However, PHP 7 not included with Debian 8.x stable version. In this tutorial, you will learn about installing PHP 7 on Debian 8.6 server. Please note that Debian 9.0 “Stretch” will include PHP 7 by default.

 

So this may become moot if the next update of ReadyNAS is to Debian 9.0?
