Solved: 1 Year, 3 Months, 3 Weeks ago
Hello|

My forum is running the latest version of MyBB with 5.6.36 version of php.

Two days ago i faced a Sql error,my forum went down for some hours and then i had to repair the database using the cpanel. Now it is working like before.

I contacted my hosting department and they asked if i updated my php version to the 7.1

Before i proceed and do something wrong, i would kindly like to ask you if it is advisable to update the php version.

I am using many plugins on my forum,will they work fine?

Please post your reviews..

Thankyou

Regards!

Your forum will be fine, however there can be a series of warnings and errors shown on index page. 

you may have to hide those warnings and errors display from the admin cp in the configuration section.

Admin CP -> Configuration -> Settings -> Server and Optimization Options -> Error Type Medium

Select Hide Errors & Warnings and save the settings.

PHP 7 is quite significantly faster than PHP 5, so it's worth upgrading.
