Frequently Asked Questions
"End-of-Life" (EOL) for a product means that the developer will no longer support the product. It's been out for long enough that an upgrade is required. In the case of PHP it means that the there will not be any feature changes or security updates. So, if there is a security issue in PHP or any of its libraries, it won't be fixed.
Yes. As long as you remain on the same version of PHP the code was intended to run on, it will continue to run. We highly recommend not doing that. Keeping old version of code and software may eventually catch up to you. If any existing or future discovered vulnerabilities are discovered a fix will not be available. This could potentially leave the application, data and server at risk.
Security is an on-going process and policy. Typically PHP releases minor updates almost monthly. It's recommended to perform these updates on the server and keep the server up to date. Don't run unsupported versions of PHP.
Code typically doesn't need to be updated unless there was a major release or functionality changed that may break the application. Major releases are between 5 and 7 (there was no PHP 6) and previous version to PHP 5.6.
It depends on the how much code will break between versions. If you are using a lot of outdated or deprecated code the more code changes will need to be made, which costs more money.
Sometimes, no or minor code changes are required. We can run tests on the code to make sure it will continue running and function normally in the new version of PHP
Maybe. It depends on the code. If the code has any backward incompatible code, then coding changes may be needed.
You can try the server upgrade and fully test the application. If anything doesn't function normally, then call a developer. We can help. You can always revert back to the old version of PHP while awaiting the code changes to be completed.
This is fine if you have a WordPress Blog or small website. If you are running a mission-critical application and can't afford to be down, I recommend having some testing done outside of the production server before flipping the switch.
