Supported PHP Versions

We provide support for PHP 7.3, 7.4, 8.0 and 8.1 for all new Bolts and websites with us.

Our PHP installations are optimized for speed and performance, with unique features for Servebolt customers. 

Our recommendation is to always run the most modern stable version of PHP that your application supports. It is almost always faster, more secure and better maintained. It will also give your application the longest possible potential life, as opposed to choosing tech that is soon to be discontinued.

Magento 2.3.1 (and upwards) supports PHP 7.2. We no longer provide support for PHP 5.x., 7.0 and 7.2.

New Sites

Every Bolt supports just one PHP-version. This is due to the performance optimization of our platform. If you want to change PHP-version, it’s easy to move to another Bolt with another PHP version.

All new WordPress & Drupal-sites and most other applications should at least run PHP 7.3.

Note: At the moment Magento 1 is limited to running PHP 7.0, Magento 1.0 needs Inchoo which will reward you with a much better performing site than running it on outdated PHP 5.6.
