So I have taken php 5.4 & 5.5 off the server. I added 7.1, which is what WuB is running now.

Its a wonder it worked with 5.4/5 both those are outdated and 5.6 is almost out too.

Bigguy

Yeah I shoulda taken them off awhile ago. I was gonna put 7.2 on there but decided to wait.

🅻🅴🆂🅼🅾🅽🅳

Hold off on 7.2 for a while, still a few things it dont work to well with.

Bigguy

Yeah, that's what I've been hearin. Things are workin good now though on 7.1 :yes

Skhilled

You can install it but just don't run your site with it.

Bigguy

I think I will leave it alone for now. :yes

I've been using PHP 7.2 for quite some time without any problems.
If you're using SMF 2.1 it should be ok.
Also I updated Battle, Arcade & EhPortal to work with it.

That sounds great. Was it much work. ??

chen_zhen

No there are only minor changes.
create_function() & each() have been deprecated as well as some other things I came across such as some PHP functions are not permitted within other PHP functions (requiring more lines of code).

Also MariaDB MySQL changes affected groups but that's not related to PHP although it is something devs had to deal with.

Bigguy

Then I may have to try it out. :)

Site seems to be a little slow loading today, this is from the bottom Page created in 2.103 seconds with 30 queries.

Bigguy

I don't think the site has woken up yet, lol. It's still early.

Bigguy

That's a little better.If it doesn't get better I'll go over setting a bit later. :)

🅻🅴🆂🅼🅾🅽🅳

Much better now Page created in 0.074 seconds with 16 queries. :)

Bigguy

Yup, she's awake now, lol.

Skhilled

Geoff, have you upgraded the VPS to MariaDB yet? If not, then you should.

Bigguy

Yeah. I am using it now. :)
