PHP 7.2 Is Now Available on MyKinsta

Written on December 04, 2017. Updated on: December 04, 2017

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.”

You can then change the PHP Engine for the staging site under “Tools” and start testing to ensure compatibility of your third-party plugins and themes. Once you confirm everything works, you can either change your production site over to PHP 7.2 or push your staging site to live.

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.
