PHP version, 5.6.36 upgrade to 7.x

Postby tigercook » Thu Oct 04, 2018 4:42 am

Hi Please can you help me with the following message from Joomla , how do I upgrade the PHP version?

Your PHP version, 5.6.36, is only receiving security fixes at this time from the PHP project. This means your PHP version will soon no longer be supported. We recommend planning to upgrade to a newer PHP version before it reaches end of support on 2018-10-01. Joomla will be faster and more secure if you upgrade to a newer PHP version (PHP 7.x is recommended). Please contact your host for upgrade instructions.

PHP 5.6.36
MySQL 5.5.57-MariaDB
Joomla version, 3.8.12

You can't update it on the NAS (unless includes an update with their firmware)

you need to run a web package in a VM or container to have full control

you can open a request..but besides that a ticket will not help much ...

using a different webserver via container or virtualization is OPs only near term solution

why not use QApache then?

Firstly QNAP Firmware has Apache 2.4.25 which is about 2 years out of date and has critical security flaws, YET Qnap refuse to put this on their Security bulletin website.

QNAP will allows run lower versions of PHP since not all websites are ready for 7.x as so many websites were coded in 5.x and with 7.x version it deprecates a number of used commands. thus making websites break very easily. QNAP I guess doesnt was to rock the boat so to speak.

QApache is created by QNAP Stephane (in his own time along with 100's more QPKG's). It has Apache 2.4.34 (at time of writing) and PHP 7.2.10 and plenty of PECL extensions. the setup is a more hands on approach and will need more user intervention that the standard QNAP built in apps.
it runs on Port 88 for http and 448 for https (needs configured)

these ports can be changed but you cannot changed them to 80/443 as this is used by QNAPS own built in apache/php. You can then port forward 80/443 requests to the NAS 88/448 for any website you have running. this and other great software are available from either https://www.qnapclub.eu/en/ or viewforum.php?f=320.

you will wait a long time for QNAP to bring out any php 7.x version.
