I am trying to upgrade Magento 2.07 to 2.1. I pass all the checks apart from the one below:
Your PHP Version is 5.6.22, but always_populate_raw_post_data = 0. $HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA is deprecated from PHP 5.6 onwards and will be removed in PHP 7.0. This will stop the installer from running. Please open your php.ini file and set always_populate_raw_post_data to -1. If you need more help please call your hosting provider.
I had this problem on setup and got around it by editing my .user.ini by adding
always_populate_raw_post_data = -1
But this seems to be ignored by the upgrade utility. Any ideas? I am thinking it might be because my cron jobs are loading the server php.ini and not my .user.ini?
