Upgrading to PHP 7 on Nginx VPS?


It used to be possible to choose a newer PHP version for Nginx sites by adding a .php-launcher script pointing to a different version than was available through the panel. That doesn’t seem to work anymore - even if I point that script to /dh/cgi-system/php72.cgi, I still get PHP 5.6 on my Nginx sites.

Is there any other way (short of rolling my own setup on a DreamCompute server) to use PHP 7 with Nginx? If not now, will it be available after the next Ubuntu upgrades on the VPSes?
