PHP was deprecated as of PHP 5.5 and removed in php7. You
must use or I have removed php7 and
dropped back to php 5.6. Ubuntu should provide the same option. It will take
another year or so for all webapps to transition to php7 the changes are fairly
substantial. I don't know what the schedule is for squirrelmail or how far along
it is, others will have to chime in.
