    Edit: Title was support to say 5.5

    With EasyApache 4 are cPanel looking to support older versions of PHP for longer? I'm concerned about old sites that rely on legacy mysql support etc.

    Is there a date cPanel will drop support for PHP 5.5, 5.6 etc.

    Hi @Gareth-AWD

    I modified the thread title to reference PHP 5.5 for you.

    I've opened an inquiry with our development EA-7421 to find out if we have a set deprecation schedule for this as well as if we're going to be supporting older PHP versions longer. I do know that as of right now we still provide PHP 5.3 which was EoL quite a few years ago per the supported versions documentation from PHP here: PHP: Supported Versions

    I'll update this thread when I get an answer to the inquiry I filed as well.


    Thank you,
