PHP versions 8.0.22 and 8.1.9

The PHP developers recently released version 8.0.22 that fixes several bugs. We’ve upgraded the PHP 8.0 series on our servers as a result.

In addition, we’ve added support for PHP 8.1 (currently version 8.1.9). We consider PHP 8.1 to be only experimental for now; it still has incompatibilities with many scripts, including WordPress, and should probably not be used on production sites. If you try it and have any trouble, we recommend you simply switch back to an earlier version of PHP in our control panel.

As always, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any trouble.
