PHP Version Error: 7.0.31 Obsolete?!

Post by mikidudle » Mon Jan 14, 2019 4:43 pm

Hi,
I've tried to get rid of this backend error message. I Updated php from 5.6 to 7.0.31. Just the version in the message changed. I deleted an obsolete plugin (Custom CSS). The error message persists. Does anyone know why I'm getting this php version error?
Joomla! 3.9.1
Virtuemart 3.4.2

FPA output below:

Log/Error Message :: wrote:Error We have detected that your server is using PHP 7.0.30 which is obsolete and no longer receives official security updates by its developers. The Joomla! Project recommends upgrading your site to PHP 7.1 or later which will receive security updates at least until 2019-12-01. Please ask your host to make PHP 7.1 or a later version the default version for your site. If your host is already PHP 7.1 ready please enable PHP 7.1 on your site's root and 'administrator' directories – typically you can do this yourself through a tool in your hosting control panel, but it's best to ask your host if you are unsure.

Well the message is very clear isn't it? We warn you that your PHP-version is out-of-date and obsolete and that you need to upgrade to Joomla 7.1. You can disable these warnings by disabling tthe plugin "Quick Icon - PHP Version Check" Still though you need to update your PHP version!

BTW, the setting for Memory Limit 32M looks rather low. You should get your host to increase it at least to 64M.

At the same time, the following two selections should have the same value, which is equal to or less than the Memory Limit:
- Max. Upload Size: 32M
- Max. POST Size: 64M

If the Error Reporting in Joomla is set to 'Default' and in the php.ini file the directive error_reporting is 0, you are not going to see any errors displayed on the pages or added to the PHP error log. Before you start troubleshooting and debugging, change the level of error reporting in Global Configuration to 'Maximum'.

LOL. I doubt that version 7.0.31 is past end of life and is no longer supported. Leolam's answer is quick witted but changing things to 7.0 or 7.1 from the CPanel "Select PHP Version" breaks the site. That's the problem.

In looking at the Apache CPanel I've found several places (MultiPHP & MultiPHP ini editor) where php 5.6 is being inherited. If I use MultiPHP to turn off inheritance, php 7.0 and 7.1 displays a 403 error when attempting to view the web site. So just changing it to 7.1 is not the answer. There's some inheritance in the htaccess file but it says edit it from MultiPHP. Love circular problems.

When I set Error Reporting at Maximum I get no errors every since I uninstalled the Custom CSS plugin (I'm using the user.css method instead). Sadly I have no idea what's causing the web site to reject php 7.0 and 7.1. What to adjust?! Is there a php version setting in Joomla! 3.9.1 that I'm missing?

Anyone have any suggestions?

See http://php.net/supported-versions.php. PHP 5, PHP 7.0 and PHP 7.1 are all at end-of-life. PHP 7.1 is no longer "actively supported" (i.e. there may be security-related patches released in future but only until 30 November this year).

PHP 7.0 (and all previous releases of PHP) are dead in the water; at this time there will be no new releases including security-related patches for this version of PHP as well as all older versions. I hope this information dispels any "doubts" you may have that the warning message about PHP 7.0.31 being obsolete is something you can ignore. Of course you may continue to use PHP 7.0.31 for as long as you wish; there is no reason to change from PHP 7.0.31 until your website crashes and dies because you are unable to obtain other software that operates on an outdated and obsolete version of PHP.

Hey Sozzled. Your right! Thanks. So ... as I asked earlier ... how do I fix this so I can upgrade to 7.1 which you indicate is a good idea? Any ideas :o)

Hey Sozzled. Your right!
Thanks for confirming that I was right before as well ;) php 7.0 is end of life as per 3rd Dec 2018.

You have extensions that are either not up-to-date with latest version or not compatible with PHP7.1. You need to address these extensions. Start with setting error reporting in your Joomla configuration to maximum (see what Toivo wrote though) , set to php7.1 and see what error is shown. Often you see a referral to the extension that is not compatible. If that does not gives clarity you will need to address the modules, components and plugins you have from 3rd party extension developers and I would start to look at your 3rd party modules. Start with disabling "ARI Image Slider (2.2.4) 1". We know that they had to update each module to work with PHP7....
