PHP 7.1 and MySQL 5.6

This evening, all Mr.Host servers were upgraded to support PHP 7.1, and MySQL 5.6.

Mr.Host supports several versions of PHP, including 5.3, 5.6, and now 7.1, configurable via the Mr.Host Customer Control Panel.

There are quite a few backwards incompatible changes in the 7.x branch of PHP, but recent versions of the most common applications, such as WordPress or Joomla, will all work fine. It’s recommended that you always keep your code up-to-date, and that you update your site to use PHP 7.1, as there are significant performance and security improvements.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us anytime,

The Mr.Host Team
