How long support php 5.6?

Hi people,

If there are a plan about the suppot time for php 5.6?

The current ownCloud version supports 5.4, why are you asking?

Sorry, i have think, the requirement is >php5.6 for
owncloud 9.x

@happyreacer, you may find complete information here : https://doc.owncloud.org/server/9.0/admin_manual/installation/system_requirements.html#recommended-setup-for-running-owncloud

If you can - go one step further.
I upgraded my Pi2 to PHP7 and its really different

…if you have the chance, its worth the effort…
(Even so its not answering your question)

yae, but sometimes it goes not so easy to update it, maybe the hoster doesn’t update.
I use an openmediavault system at home and it is a debian system with a GUI and this was bonded on the php version.
But this is my problem :wink:

As said above at the moment your Nextcloud should run with php 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 and 7.0. If your hoster is currently 5.6 your should be safe for a while. While there are no hard quarantees it is safe to assume Nextcloud will (at least) support the current supported versions by upstream (see http://php.net/supported-versions.php).

PHP-5.6 even has a longer support period till December 2018. So you should be OK.
