PHP 7 offers significant performance improvements and is recommended by WordPress and other major CMS’s. Upgrading to PHP 7 is quick and easy as long as your website and its functionality are supported on this version.

We’ve prepared a checklist to ensure your upgrade runs smoothly.

Pre-upgrade Checklist:

  • Check the WordPress core version your site is using to ensure it’s up to date.
  • Make sure there are no pending software updates or older themes/plugins that may have expired.
