PHP 7.x?
« on: June 16, 2017, 06:27:21 AM »
Currently, most (if not all) LP servers are at PHP 5.6. This version is no longer in active support, but security fixes will be released as-needed until late 2018 (http://php.net/supported-versions.php). PHP 7.1 is now considered the current release.

Are there any public announcements on when LP will upgrade to PHP 7? Are there any tools to help with discovering potential problems in migrating our sites' code from PHP 5.6 to 7.0 or 7.1? How about the ability to enable PHP 7 as a test? I'm sure my own site code will be fine (though live testing with PHP 7 would be reassuring), but I'm worried about embedded applications such as SMF and OpenCart. I'd rather not have to go through the hassle of installing a WAMPP server on my PC, just to be able to test on PHP 7.
