  • PHP Version 5.6 to 7

    I've read up that as of December 2018, PHP will divert their security support or something like that to php 7 and stop with 5.6. So my question is what becomes of php 5.6? will the sites that continue to use it be more vulnerable or something? any advice please? or did i get the info wrong?

      In time sites using <=5.6 will gradually be faded out and hosts will not want to use them as they will be less secure than more secure versions.

          ̶P̶r̶o̶b̶a̶b̶l̶y̶ ̶y̶e̶a̶r̶s̶, The main issue will be updating mysql to mysqli for most scripts, however there already is quick fixes been made such as:

          Edit:
          Looks like hosts are already warning about updating php versions
