I have a number of websites hosted with bluehost.com. I recently received the following email from them:
In an ongoing effort to bring you the very best products and services, we’re excited to announce that we will be upgrading all of our servers to newer versions of PHP. In addition to improved data processing, which can boost your site’s speed and performance, you’ll also gain increased security. Newer versions of PHP have more frequent security updates to help protect your site against unwanted hacks or malware.
When will it happen?
At some point during the upgrade window -- October 19, 2020 through October 23, 2020 -- your account will be updated, and older versions of PHP will no longer be supported. You may experience a brief disruption in service, but we will work to upgrade your site quickly with the most updated version of PHP software your website will support.
Do I need to do anything on my end?
Yes, to avoid a negative impact to your site, we recommend that you upgrade all of your web installations to the newest PHP software available before we move your account. Newer versions of PHP are already available on your current server, and you can set your site to use those versions with this helpful guide. You should also backup all of your website files.
What if a newer version of PHP won’t work on my site? What can I do?
If a newer version of PHP doesn’t work on your site you have a number of options available to you. We’ve put together a few of those options here.
We assure you that we will try to minimize the risk to your site. However, if you need help with these changes before they occur, we are available for you via chat or by phone at 888-401-4678.
Your Bluehost Support Team
The following websites are hosted on my Bluehost server:
[login to view URL] (Open Journal Systems CMS)
[login to view URL] (CMS Made Simple CMS)
[login to view URL] (Wordpress CMS)
[login to view URL] (WordPress CMS)
I need a Freelancer to find out what is the latest version of PHP supported by the CMSes I am using for my websites, then upgrade each site to that version of PHP, as per the request from Bluehost.
I do not want a Freelancer to ask me what version of PHP I want them to install - I need YOU do do that research for me.
