Upgrade from PHP 5.6.31 to 7 or 7.1 question
« on: September 01, 2017, 12:42:08 PM »
Hi,

I'm with GoDaddy and my site has been running fine, so the old addage of 'if it isn't broken, don't try and fix it' comes to mind, however, the PHP version I use is 5.6.31 and I keep getting messages to upgrade to 7 or 7.1.

What is the advice, upgrade or not, and if I did, what would break (I use Saratoga and Meteo Templates).

Thanks in advance

I ran check-fetch-times.php?show=versions on your site, and you're current with all the scripts -- congrats!

My site is running PHP 7.1.4 with no issues and the current scripts, so you shouldn't have any issues with the PHP upgrade on your Saratoga site.
