We currently support PHP versions starting from 7.2 up to 8.1.
PHP version 5.6 will no longer receive any security updates or bug fixes. There have been fixes and updates throughout the life cycle of PHP, and those updates will stop for PHP 5.6. The same goes for PHP versions such as 7.0-7.3 however, we may still be able to enable PHP 7.0-7.3 for your website if that is necessary.
- Litespeed: 5.4.11 up to 6.0.11;
- PHP: 7.2 to 8.1 (If you need PHP versions 7.0-7.3 our support agents may be able to assist you);
- MariaDB: 10.4 up to 10.5.
More recent versions of these have not yet proven their stability in a dynamic hosting environment to our satisfaction.
It is advised to use the latest PHP version that is available because it is not only the fastest but the most secure.
