PHP upgrade on server help

Recommended Posts

My company are looking to upgrade the PHP level from 5.3.3 to the latest version available. This is so we can use the latest versions of Joomla and Virtuemart.


What I want to know is - Will the update force any older websites to stop working or lose functionality? Will it cause any problems?


Having never updated PHP like this before, I need to know. If no problems, then I can tell our server admin to update the PHP level.

Yes, it's possible. It depends what version the code was actually developed for. If your code is fully 5.3.3 compliant, then you should be okay. I believe at most you'd have deprecated warnings that you'd want to take care of pretty soon.


The easiest way to check is to get a virtual machine running with the newer version and see if it works or not.
