We're always keen to bring you the latest new features as soon as possible, and we're pleased to announce that the first 'point' release in the PHP7 series is now here - coming a year after the long awaited PHP 7 release.
Today, the popular content management software Joomla! issued an update relating to a critical Remote Code Execution class vulnerability (CVE-2015-8562). If you are a shared, reseller, semi-managed, or fully-managed cPanel client, you need not be concerned as a defense has already been deployed by our engineering team across these platforms.
We're excited to announce that the latest PHP 7 Release Candidate is now available on our shared and reseller hosting, and also any cloud or dedicated servers which utilise our "Hive" PHP selector. PHP 7 is a big milestone in the development of PHP, and it provides significant improvements in performance over other PHP 5.x versions.
We're pleased to announce that PHP 5.5 has now been rolled out for our shared and reseller hosting clients. This means that in addition to PHP 5.3 & 5.4, you can now use the latest and greatest release from the development team over at php.net. In the future older releases will be removed, so we advise all clients to test their applications with this latest release.
We recently completed migrating all of our shared servers to use the performance oriented and feature enhanced MariaDB as a replacement for MySQL. We are always on the lookout for new technologies and features to enhance our customer's hosting experience, and MariaDB is one that definitely fits!
