Planned Upgrades from PHP 5.5 to PHP 5.6

LuxSci will be upgrading servers that are currently running PHP v5.5 to the latest version of PHP v5.6 on/after February 15th, 2017.  PHP v5.5 is no longer receiving updates from the community and thus is not viable for continued use.  PHP v5.6 will continue to be supported for the next 2 years.

For those one servers that are running PHP v5.5, please review the following upgrade guide, as there are some changes in going to PHP v5.6 that are incompatible with how PHP v5.5 works(this is why we do not just auto-upgrade everyone without notice):

PHP 5.5 to 5.6 Upgrade Guide

Some of the backwards incompatible changes involve:

  • json_decode and boolean values
  • SSL/TLS certificate verification will be enabled
  • mcrypt changes

Please contact LuxSci support if you have any questions.
