SiteGround PHP Updates
SiteGround is working on PHP Updates for their client sites, which affects our client sites. Courtland recommends SiteGround hosting to all of our clients. We have experience working with many different hosting companies. In our experience, we have found that overall, SiteGround is one of the best hosting companies. Their hosting platforms, uptime, and their support team are reliable and great to work with. They are continually evolving to ensure their clients experience is the best it can be.
As part of their continual quest for the fastest and most secure hosting platforms, they are currently working on updating all sites to PHP version 7.4. There are several of our clients sites that were recently upgraded to version 7.4.
Clients should have received an email making them aware of the upgrade. We recommend that you visit your websites, all of its subdomains (if any) and its admin area. Check if everything is working correctly after the upgrade. Support for the older versions of PHP will continue until the end of 2021. If you notice any issues, there is time to revert back to the earlier version while updates are made so your site is compatible with the newer version of PHP. If you have any questions, or aren’t sure if your site was one of the sites that was updated, let’s talk. We are happy to walk through any of this with you.
