Closed 2 days ago. Improve this question I have a website i'm working on that is broken due to old PHP. Right now we are just trying to get the website up and running quickly. Where i am asking for help is....which PHP is safe to update to without breaking too much. I've read a post that when updating PHP 5.3 is safer to update to 5.6 and then after that update to PHP 7 as the best route, but that post is 8 years old, and i am aware PHP 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, and 7.4 have all reached end of life. The hosting site turbify using WordPress allows for PHP 5.6 upwards. Any suggestions on which PHP to go for, and if i should do this in stages? i've only done research, haven't made any changes as of yet because i don't want to break more than what could be avoided.
