Updating PHP

Updating PHP is hosting dependent – most good hosts will have information on this, but if you’d like assistance to get your site running on the latest version of PHP, get in touch. Some plugins and extensions won’t necessarily work as expected on a newer version of PHP, so it’s always good to test, test, test.
