PHP Version upgrade

We have detected that your server is using PHP 7.4.8 which is obsolete and no longer receives official security updates by its developers. The Joomla! Project recommends upgrading your site to PHP 8.0 or later which will receive security updates at least until 2023-11-26.

Please ask your host to make PHP 8.0 or a later version the default version for your site. If your host is already PHP 8.0 ready please enable PHP 8.0 on your site’s root and ‘administrator’ directories – typically you can do this yourself through a tool in your hosting control panel, but it’s best to ask your host if you are unsure.

We are working to install PHP8 on free servers, however we are running into some issues. We don’t currently know when PHP8 can be successfully ran on free servers at the moment.

However, PHP8 is available on premium hosting, if you wish to upgrade.


Still test running perhaps best try use wordpress then hopefully no challenges there.
