About PHP 7.4 end-of-life

We receive many questions from customers about whether or not we plan to stop offering PHP 7.4.

Simply.com has no plans to remove or stop offering PHP 7.4, just as we still offer several other PHP 7 versions (and even PHP 5.6).

We will set our default PHP version to PHP 8.0 when WordPress and various themes start recommending it over PHP 7.4. We’ll give plenty of notice before making any changes.

If you want to use PHP 8, you can set this up for your web space – read more about this here: https://www.simply.com/en/support/faq/php/503/

One thought on “About PHP 7.4 end-of-life”

  1. This is much appreciated! Making legacy systems compatible with PHP 8 is a huge task. Just the fact that eg. undefined indexes are now warnings instead of notices is a terrible decision – they could at least have made it an option. If you really rely on these warnings to not make lots of mistakes, then I strongly question you ability as a programmer.

    (I know warnings can be suppressed but then you are also suppressing other warnings you might actually want to see).
