Does Nextcloud’s source code define somewhere what the supported PHP versions are? The Installation guide says
PHP (>= 5.6, 7.0 or 7.1)
but this is all I could find.
Is this just a convention or enforced somewhere. I want to know because I wonder what the highest PHP version is that I can use for apps. I suppose if Nextcloud 13 claims to work with >=5.6 then all apps should, too. Is this correct?
I mostly wanted to use the null coalescing operator that is only available in PHP7 and a more current version of phpunit. For the latter I realized that this would be only a dev dependency anyway, so I should be fine using the most current one.
