    Hello,

    I realize that at some point i need to upgrade to Easyapache4. I use Wordpress and php5.5 and today noticed a plugin i need requires 5.6.

    I run WP on one site (which i suppose supports php7) but i also run a php store that will not work with 7 and never will.

    Will i be able to upgrade to Easy4 and run WP with php7 and another site with 5.6 (or 5.5 as now).

    Also will upgrading to MariaDb break anything in wordpress?

    thanks

    /J

    Yes, that's the beauty of running EA4 you can have your sites running on different PHP versions.

    MariaDB is compatible with Wordpress and shouldn't, I would of course as a rule of thumb always make backups before attempting any form of upgrade like this. I would also (personally) do one at a time. Get the EA4 update out of the way first then once you're sure there's no more issues update to MariaDB.


    Thanks!
