It’s Time To Welcome PHP 7.2

It’s Time To Welcome PHP 7.2

It’s time to say goodbye to PHP 7.1 and welcome to PHP 7.2!

Sometime ago Hampshire IT Solutions (HITS) upgraded all our clients to PHP 7.1 and we immediately noticed an improvement in the speed of their sites. PHP 7.1 introduced some great performance gains for all web applications including WordPress. However, technology never stands still and a newer version of PHP 7.2 has since been launched.

PHP 7.2 Is Now Default For All HITS Client Sites

Now that PHP 7.1 is no longer actively supported by the PHP team, HITS has switched the PHP version for all our servers and websites to PHP 7.2. Thanks to our extensive testing PHP 7.2 has been made fully stable with our servers, platform and framework powering our client sites. The switchover was instant and we have since tested each of our client sites to ensure that they are all playing nice.

PHP 7.2 Is The Recommended Version In WordPress

Since the last 2 or 3 updates to WordPress PHP 7.2 has been set as the recommended version for all WordPress instances. While legacy is still in place for versions under this they will soon be removed in future builds of WordPress.

We hope you like the new performance results of PHP 7.2 as much as we do!
