PHP 5.3 and 5.4 being phased out

The authors of the PHP scripting language stopped supporting the PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.4 series some time ago.

Newer versions of PHP are generally more secure, have fewer bugs, and in some cases run far faster. Of course, that’s really just another way of saying that older versions of PHP are insecure, buggy, and slow.

Because of that, we are phasing out PHP versions earlier than 5.5 (we also offer the 5.6 and 7.0 series):

  • New customers can no longer choose the old versions.
  • We’ll start sending reminders to customers who use the old versions, asking them to upgrade.

We have a page dedicated to explaining how, and why, to update PHP.
