PHP 7 delayed by two weeks – learn more about RC 7

UPDATE 2: While testing PHP 7 Release Candidate 7, we encountered some security issues. So, for your security, we decided not to release PHP 7 RC 7 for testing, as previously announced. Once the next version of PHP 7 becomes available on November 26th, we will review it and – if it meets our requirements – make it available for testing.

UPDATE: PHP 7 was scheduled for a release on November 12th. Due to some critical bugs in PHP 7 RC 6, this release was pushed back by two weeks. According to the PHP timetable, PHP 7 will be released on November 26th.

  1. With the final release of PHP 7 and implementing it on my Plesk server with 1and1, I ran into one problem with a PHP authentication script, used in concert with our XenForo forums. (It works with PHP 5.6.16 same configuration).

    I’ve posted a message asking for someone to help me fix it in your forums, in the Plesk forums, in the XenForo forums.

    Does 1and1 have anyone who can assist?

    Peace,

      Hi Gene,

      thanks for reaching out to us.

      This community article describes our implementation of PHP 7 on our shared hosting webservers.

      Sorry, we don’t offer adminstrative support for server applications. I hope you’ll find the assistance you need in the mentioned developers forums.

      Kind regards,
      Michael, 1&1
