We’re constantly dedicated to bringing you the latest stable versions of PHP as soon as we have thoroughly tested it throughout our environment. Today we are excited to announce that PHP 7.2 is now available for all Kinsta users. You can easily change PHP versions from within the MyKinsta dashboard, under Tools, with a single click.
We strongly encourage everyone to test PHP 7.2 in a staging environment first before using it on your live site. In MyKinsta simply select “Staging Environment” from the drop down and click on “Create a Staging Environment.”
Remember that you can switch PHP engines back and forth, so if you encounter compatibility issues with PHP 7.2, you can easily resort back to PHP 7.1. Read more about changes with this new version in our blog post on what’s new in PHP 7.2.
