Upgrading to PHP 7.4


In an ongoing effort to bring you the best products and services, we will be upgrading all of our servers to PHP 7.4.

When Will It Happen?

At some point during the upgrade window – February 22, 2021, through February 28, 2021 – your account will be updated, and older versions of PHP will no longer be supported. You may experience a brief disruption in service during this time.

Do I Need to Do Anything on My End?

Yes, we recommend that you upgrade all of your web installations to the latest PHP software available before we upgrade your account.

Newer versions of PHP are already available on your current server, and you can set your site to use those versions with this articleHow to Update the PHP Version.

If you wish to learn more about the available PHP versions in our servers, you can check this helpful guide What Version of PHP Are You Using?.

Important Note: You should back up all of your website files before performing the PHP version upgrade of your web installations.

What if the Recent Version of PHP Doesn't Work on My Site?

We’ve put together a list of fixes for the most common errors. Please see the following articles for more information.
