LAMP image in Martketplace updated with php 8

I was going through a build of a new server with the LAMP stack on Ubuntu 20.04 and see that it’s been updated with PHP8. Last month, the same image had PHP 7.4.

Is there a changelog or publication date for these marketplace images? I have a web app that was tested with PHP 7.4 and now I have to either revert to 7.4 or go with another image.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello, @SanStar

We have our partners build their images and submit them via our Marketplace Vendor Portal. From there, we test, approve, list the updated image. The vendors are responsible for updating and making changes to their apps.

I’ll double-check this for you and will get back to you.

In the meantime, you can also configure the LAMP Stack on a fresh droplet manually by following our tutorial on How To Install Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (LAMP) stack on Ubuntu 20.04

A “LAMP” stack is a group of open-source software that is typically installed together to enable a server to host dynamic websites and web apps. This term is actually an acronym which represents the Linux operating system, with the Apache web server. The site data is stored in a MySQL database, and dynamic content is processed by PHP. In this guide, we will install a LAMP stack on an Ubuntu 20.04 server.
  • Hi @SanStar - we don’t currently have a public facing changelog available for Marketplace apps, and I agree it’s something that would be helpful for customers to have visibility into. Let me bring it back to our team to see if there’s something we can do around that.

    • Thanks, @johngannon. This scenario probably doesn’t affect too many situations, but it’s always good to have more info.

      For me, it’s just another thing to keep track of and tells me I need to pay more attention to the release cycles of these major components.
