PHP 8.0 Now Available on All ICDSoft Servers

We are happy to announce that PHP 8.0 is now available on all ICDSoft servers. As usual, PHP 8 brings many security and performance improvements over previous PHP versions.

Full details on the changes in this version (like new and deprecated features or backward incompatibilities) are available in the official PHP Manual for migrating from PHP 7.4.x to PHP 8.0.x:

https://www.php.net/manual/en/migration80.php

If you are an ICDSoft user and want to test PHP 8 on your account, you can easily change the PHP version via the hosting Control Panel > PHP Settings section. You can control the PHP version of each subdomain separately. Full instructions are available at:

Before switching to PHP 8, please make sure that your scripts and applications are fully compatible with this new version. The most popular PHP-based software for running websites, WordPress, is compatible with PHP 8 in its latest version, but some plugins and themes may not be.

You can always revert back to the previous PHP version in case you experience any issues.

The default PHP version for new accounts on our servers will remain PHP 7.4, since many software applications are not yet compatible with PHP 8.0.
