Are YOU checking which version and release of PHP is being used by your Joomla! website?

We strongly recommend that you periodically check which release is being provided by your hosting provider for the PHP version used by your website.

Always request that they provide the latest available security release.

Do not settle for anything earlier than PHP 7.0 or 7.1 if you are using the latest available release of Joomla! CMS (recommended). 

We tell you how to check which version & release of PHP is being used by your Joomla! website in our JOOMLERS.UK User Guide.
