Thanks, I will think about it.

The thing is that I have to install all of those dependencies and I 
don't want to end up having a very complex to maintain system.

     gd with Freetype support
     MySQLi (required for PHP 5.5)
     MySQLnd (required for PHP 5.5 and above)

The software we need to get there is not maintained by us, so we'll have 
to stick to the versions they support. But I will try to push them to 
update to PHP 7, thanks.
