Hello there everybody!
I am unsure if this has been asked before, my quick search didn’t show much that relates. But otherwise my apologies.
To keep it simple, I ran Nextcloud 20.0.8 before, and today it went for an update to 21.0.1, which is great, mainly given the great advertising on the speed improvements, I like extra speed!
But now the thing is, everywhere I went I read “PHP8, new MySQL needed!” and I am unsure how this exactly works? I am still on PHP 7.4 (or 7.2, not sure, whatever 20.0.8 worked on) and the older MySQL as far as I am concerned. I haven’t touched neither yet Nextcloud continues to function…
Soo, what do I do from here? Will upgrading to php8 get me any benefits here? Is there a guide on upgrading from an older to a newer version of php? I just wonder if any one has the answers I seek, because I am just a little confused.
