Upgrading to PHP 7.2 on Cloud Sites

PHP 5.6 and 7.0 have reached their end of life and security. They will no longer be patched and supported on our Cloud Sites hosting after December of 2018. Because of the inherent vulnerabilities of unsupported software, we must remove these versions from our platform.

Due to the end of life of PHP 5.6 and 7.0, any websites in your account using this technology need to be transitioned to PHP 7.2 before February 2019. Your website technology can be found on the Website Details tab of the Control Panel. To help you transition, we are providing you with PHP 7.2 test links as well as the Knowledge Base article linked here: https:/squid.us/php72

Datacenter Migration on August 9th

Our upstream provider Liquid Web will be performing an evening maintenance on Aug 9th to migrate between data centers.

During the maintenance window, the Control Panel will be temporarily unavailable (approximately 1 hour) to ensure synchronization between locations. Also during this maintenance window, your websites and databases will experience temporarily READ ONLY mode to ensure accurate data transfer. After the migration, the database management IPs will be updated to the IPs listed at the link below. You will see this change reflected in the control panel as well.

NOTE: Database read only status will be based on size and complexity of individual database. Large databases may take 20-60 minutes for synchronization. The maintenance window is expected to last for approximately six hours.

Any further updates, as well as the list of new database IP’s can be found here: http://status.websitesettings.com/incidents/4fhqlqb2ytv7
