Time to start using PHP 7.2 with your Joomla! CMS
And the developer now only provides support for PHP 7.1 on an as-needed basis in response to critical security issues - until later this year.
On the other hand, PHP 7.2 will be actively supported by the developer until November 2019, and security supported until November 2020.
Joomla! 3.9 CMS is compatible with PHP 7.2.
More reasons to switch to using PHP 7.2
PHP 7.2 provides a significant performance boost for Joomla! websites:
- Improved performance, including page load speed.
- Significant reduction in memory usage, meaning more users can be served at any one time.
Older versions of Joomla!
We recommend only ever using the latest available version of Joomla! CMS.
