This guide outlines the required PHP and WordPress versions for our plugin.
What is PHP?
PHP is widely used as the programming language, for WordPress and Duplicator.
Upgrading to versions of PHP offers improved speed and security benefits. We notify users who are using PHP versions because it puts their website at risk without security updates.
The easiest solution is to get in touch with your web hosting provider and ask them to update the PHP version for your hosting account. Usually this process is straightforward. Your web host should be proactive, in assisting you with it.
If your hosting company refuses to upgrade your PHP version or provide guidance through your hosting control panel it suggests that they do not prioritize the security of your website. In cases we recommend considering switching to one of the WordPress hosting providers suggested in WPBeginners article.
