Apart from logging to the wrong file (the error log defined for that vhost defined last),
lighty does not let me use PHP 7. What am I missing?
cgi.fix_pathinfo is enabled in
How can I
make sure you're using the FastCGI-enabled version? What else should I look for?
version info (shrinked to the necessary)

lighty config file excerpt
> head -41 /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf | tail -9 fastcgi.server = ( ".php" => (( "bin-path" => "/usr/bin/php-cgi", "socket" => "/tmp/php.socket", "bin-environment" => ( "PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN" => "16", "PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS" => "1000" ), "broken-scriptfilename" => "enable" )))
If I change the socket to an invalid path, restarting lighttpd works fine; but the server is unreachable. (
bind failed for: (invalid path) in the error log); so this seems like the correct config file.
/etc/lighttpd/conf-available/15-fastcgi-php.conf in the same way has no effect at all.
Changing the socket to
"/var/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock" has no effect either (
php_info() still says PHP 5.6 after restarting lighty).
After changing bin-path to
/usr/sbin/php-fpm7.0 , I still get no error when restarting lighttpd, but the web server is unreachable.

update I just uninstalled php5 hoping this would resolve the issues; but that didn´t help either. Instead, I seem to have no way to get php5 back.
