We made the latest version of PHP – version 7.4 – available on its release day last week.
You can switch a single site to it now by managing your hosting package and selecting ‘Change PHP Version’.

PHP-FPM: better process management
Creative use of PHP is central to making the AUOCloud hosting platform unique.
Our developers have improved our unique autoscaling technology by specifically tuning Apache to manage PHP-FPM and OPcache pools for all websites. This makes PHP applications even faster on our platform.
We’ve worked hard to get the PHP-FastCGI Process Manager and OPcache working at our scale. It now integrates seamlessly with our autoscaling and load balancing. It boosts performance for every website running PHP 5.6 or above without any need for further optimisation.
So you’ll find that busy sites will run even faster and smoother for every user now.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
