How can I update PHP?

You may see a notice asking you to update PHP to a newer version. Here’s an example.

Event recurrence is disabled. PHP 5.3 or newer is required for recurrence to work. Update PHP to fix.

Keeping PHP up to date is typically your web host’s responsibility. You can ask your host to update PHP to the latest version for you. Most will be glad to correct this problem. If they will not do this, it’s probably time to find a more responsible host. Running an outdated version of PHP can create compatibility and security problems. See our hosting recommendations.

Not sure if your version of PHP is up to date? Here’s how you can check.

  1. Go to Plugins > Add New and search for Display PHP Version.
  2. Install and activate the plugin then go to your dashboard to see your PHP version.
  3. Check that your version is currently supported.
