My Wordpress needs to be updated to 5.8.1. It can't be updated because the current Wordpress version will not run on any PHP version higher than 5.2.17. When we update our Hostgator server to PHP version 7.3 or 7.4 the Wordpress site no longer works and the admin page can't be accessed.
The Tech at Hostgator says we have to have someone rewrite the scripts to allow Wordpress to be update to the latest version, which runs on PHP 7 versions. Hostgator no longer supports old PHP versions.
