Time for an Upgrade – WordPress Needs PHP 7.2

Author: Jennifer | Date: June 17, 2020 | Categories: ,

PHP 7.2 is the minimum recommended version to run WordPress

If you are running a WordPress website, the developers behind the popular CMS recommend running a minimum of PHP 7.2. However, they prefer version 7.3 or newer. Sites using older versions of PHP may still continue to work, but they will be susceptible to security vulnerabilities.

How to tell which php version is being used

In December 2018, PHP 5.6 and 7.0 reached “end of life” and stopped receiving security updates. Keeping up-to-date with the lowest recommended version of PHP (currently 7.2) ensures that your version is receiving security updates. This helps to keep back-end flaws that allow hackers to take control of your site to a minimum.
