PHP 8.1 and 8.2 are here!

PHP 8.1 and 8.2 are here!

We are happy to announce that both PHP 8.1 and 8.2 are now available at Gigahost!

PHP 8.1 is a major update of the PHP language and contains many new features, including enums, readonly properties, first-class callable syntax, fibers, intersection types, performance improvements and more.

PHP 8.2 is another major update and includes features such as readonly classes, null, false, and true as stand-alone types, deprecated dynamic properties, performance improvements and more.

Since PHP 8.1 and 8.2 are major releases, upgrading may break some web sites. So make sure to test your site when changing to one of the new versions. On Gigahost, you can change the version for each domain name, and always revert to the earlier version in case something doesn't work out.

The PHP version can be changed in the Gigahost Control Center by selecting the domain name and then “PHP version”.
