PHP Versions
« on: December 29, 2017, 06:52:42 AM »
Just in case anyone is looking at switching to a newer version of PHP on your website, I offer the following.

I have been running PHP version 7.2 on my site for a few days now and have not had any problems. Prior to this I ran version 7.0 for almost 18 months and then 7.1 for the last three months. The last release of PHP 5x was 5.6, which is no longer actively supported, but it will still receive critical security updates as needed for another year. As you probably know, there was no version 6.

Here is the latest on supported PHP versions ==>

I would be interested in knowing what version of PHP you are running on your website.

7.0 on my pi3 hosted web site, but this is a reminder that I should update it. Something to do before I get back to work....?

Actually, I think an update from Jessie to Stretch version of Debian is higher priority...
