We are working towards making our Hosting Platform more stable and secure. One of the best ways we can do this is to stop supporting older versions of PHP that are no longer supported by the PHP community.
We have decided to: (i) deprecate the older versions of PHP (i.e. PHP v5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2) from our servers; and (ii) withdraw support for these deprecated PHP versions. These versions have shown the highest number of vulnerabilities over the last few years. Also, they stopped receiving support from the PHP community some time ago (PHP Unsupported Branches: https://www.php.net/eol.php).
- When can you expect these changes?
We request that you get your websites upgraded to PHP version 7.3 or 7.4. After 31st October 2020, older PHP versions (5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2) will not be supported on our servers.
- How to upgrade the PHP version?
You can manage the PHP version from the "MultiPHP Manager" option in your cPanel.
P.S. Please ignore this message if your websites are already running on PHP 7.3 or above.
