PHP Upgrade Needed

PHP

Good morning Digital Ocean, I have a web designer who is trying to update/ upgrade my website for the first time in 5 years and she is having trouble since the PHP has to be updated. Per my Web Press page “W3 Total Cache requires PHP version 5.6 or above.” Please advise how we can make this happen so the update can continue. The designer is unable to do anything right now. Thanks in advance! Regards, Paul S. Haberman (psh@paulhabermanlaw.com)

Hello,

What I could suggest is following the steps from this tutorial here on how to upgrade your PHP version:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-upgrade-php-7-0-33-to-7-4-7-on-ubuntu-16-04-nginx

I would strongly recommend taking a backup of your server before proceeding in case that your website is not compatible with the new PHP version, that way you would be able to revert back to a working backup.

Hope that this helps.
Best,
Bobby
