Here at Flywheel, we’re always working hard to make sure your sites are backed by the latest and greatest technologies. This week, we’re announcing support for one of the most anticipated: PHP 7.3!
This is an incremental release with significant benefits to Flywheel customers on both our Cloud and Classic platforms. Sites upgrading from 7.2 to 7.3 can see up to a 10% increase in speed. Additionally, keeping up with the latest PHP version guarantees you’ll have the latest feature set and are avoiding security vulnerabilities.
To give you plenty of time to test your existing sites on PHP 7.3, we’ll be upgrading all sites in Q1, 2020. If you’d like to upgrade before then, just let our support team know and we’ll get your site set up on 7.3!
Additionally, as of this week, all new sites on Flywheel will use PHP 7.3. If you have any questions about the upgrade, feel free to reach out to the support team from your Flywheel dashboard.
