I updated the PHP-version and it broke my site, what now?

Updating the PHP-version can broke your website, if you use code that isn’t compliant with the version on the webhost. In example, if your site uses PHP 5.6 and you update your settings to PHP 7.

You can revert back to the old PHP version, by selecting the old version from the drop down menu. This update takes a while and website should be back to normal. After this you need to contact your website manager , so the PHP code can be updated. This is important, if you use PHP 5.6, this version will be dropped in the future, and it doesn’t recieve security updates after 31.12.2018.

For security and performance reasons, we recommend that you use the latest PHP-version on your website.
