Should we drop support for PHP versions older than 5.3 60
Yes (52) 87%
No (8) 13%
Support for both PHP 4.4 and PHP 5.2 versions has been provided since the first version of the PhpSwitcher plugin, even through those versions were already not longer supported by upstream PHP team.
As time goes on, it become really hard for us to support these versions that are not longer compatible with various development libraries provided by newest OS versions. Also, these versions don't provide the PHP FastCGI process Manager (fpm) and so, they are not usable with the i-MSCP apache2/fpm server implementation which should be your first choice.
As a reminder:
- PHP 4.4 is EOL since 7 August 2008 (~ 10 years ago)
- PHP 5.2 is EOL since 6 January 2011 (~ 8 years ago)
We think that it's time to drop support for these "prehistorical" versions as nobody should rely on them. However because we care about our customers, we open this poll to let's you choose.
Thank for your participation.
