Thanks so much!!!
I replaced all php references with php70 and it worked great!


Thank you for that comment. I was racking my brain trying to get some php7 dependencies to work. I can verify that replacing instances of php54 with php70 did work.

A few small updates:

cd $HOME
ln -s `which php56` ~/bin/php
export PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH
curl -sS | php56
echo -e "\n# Composer\nalias composer=\"php56 \$HOME/bin/composer.phar\"" >> $HOME/.bash_profile
source $HOME/.bash_profile
