In an effort to always keep your websites up to date and secure, all of our cPanel and Cloud hosting servers will be updated to PHP 5.6 as a minimum on 31st Oct 2017 as support and security updates for 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 are not available. This does not affect any of our Sitebuilder Users.
php.net has stated that Users of these releases should upgrade as soon as possible, as they may be exposed to unpatched security vulnerabilities.
What is php? Read here.
Support for 5.6 will end on 31st Dec 2018 at which time all cPanel and Cloud hosting accounts will be set to PHP 7.x
Please Note: All Clients that have an Active Joomla Update Subscription are already running PHP7.x, if you are not on one of our subscriptions please make sure your website software is up to date at this time.
You can read more about Supported php versions below, please contact Jon Web Design for any help you may need.
