PHP updated via Homebrew but still shows old version

Jul 11, 2018

Restart your machine.

I upgraded PHP from 7.1 to 7.2. But Running php -v would still show PHP 7.1.

I tried to various troubleshooting steps but nothing worked. This is a great blog post about upgrading PHP to 7.2 with troubleshooting but it didn’t help either.

Finally, I gave up and restart my machine, an old habit. Viola php -v would show 7.2. Possibly, restarting shell would have been enough, but oh well.
