Not sure where to post this, please move as appropriate.

Folks, time to upgrade PHP! It looks like PHP 5.x (i.e.; all versions of php5) and PHP 7.0 are going out of support on December 31st of this year. I’m on 7.0 and upgrading soon (CentOS 7, IUS repository).

While many of you probably already know of this, this article was the first I’d heard of it:

Fox, what do you develop against?

I’m a bit constrained on that box - it’s a VPS, it hosts a couple of others’ websites (which I maintain,( and it’s running Centos 6.10 which they won’t allow me to reimage using Centos 7. Which apparently they do offer to new customers.

Been meaning to look to different hosting, but :man_shrugging:. It’s OK for what I need it for. At the moment.

Do you want a recommendation?…

Not adverse to it, but it’s more lethargy on my part to bother doing anything about it than anything else.
