On March 1, 2018, Mainely Web will begin the process of upgrading the default PHP version for all customers from version 7.1 to version 7.2. Mainely Web will be ending support for PHP version 5.6 but continue to support PHP 7.1 until March 2020 if the customer manually chooses PHP 7.1 in the control panel.
If your website uses some deprecated functionality from PHP 7.1 and it's not updated prior to March 1, 2019, there may be issues with the website operation unless you manually select PHP 7.1 in the PHP Manager. This solution will only work until March 2020, after which time all customers will need to move to PHP version 7.2 or newer.
The PHP Manager has already been updated to offer the selection of PHP 7.2 right now without having to wait for the automatic switch-over.
To set your website to PHP 7.2, please follow these steps
