PHP Upgrade Help Desk

NEXT MEETUP – Saturday, June 9, 2018. 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

OK, What is PHP?

PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. 

PHP is a programming language, one which the WordPress Software was written with.

PHP 7 has been released, but yea, many of you still use PHP 5 (which is currently insecure, sort-of) 

That could be because of a few reasons: 

  1. Don’t know what PHP is and how to upgrade it
  2. Don’t understand the trickiness of cPanel and can’t even find your way to the PHP side of things
  3. Afraid of doing something that will break your entire site

Whatever the reason, we are here to help. We would have some volunteers who are expert with cPanel and PHP, and yup, we will help and guild you through the whole process at this meetup.

And of-course, if you think you’re good with cPanel; you can volunteer to help out also. just indicate on the Whatsapp group or email wpportharcourt [at]

PS: This meetup is for those that already has a WordPress site and would want to upgrade the PHP version of the installation
