  • jcbsep


    Hi again team!

    I can’t activate a plugin because my version of PHP is outdated (5.3.3-7+squeeze14).

    Does someone know how I could update it?

    Thank you in advance!

    This isn’t really a WordPress issue; have you spoken to your hosting provider?



    Thanks for your answer @stephencottontail

    Yes, I did. They told me that I might have issues with the PHP 7 version and I should make sure that all my websites are compatible with that version of PHP.

    The main problem is that I don´t know how to check if my websites will or won’t be compatible with PHP 7.

    Some ideas?

    Thanks again!

    WordPress core itself is compatible with PHP7. I found this plugin that performs automated compatibility tests ( but it’s not 100% guaranteed. Your best bet would be to ask your theme and plugin authors if they know of any issues with PHP 7.

    Thank you so much @stephencottontail !

    I will do both!
