PHP 7.4 is now officially outdated, which happened on November 28, 2022. This means that this version of PHP will no longer receive security updates. If you have a digital solution running on PHP 7.4, you should strongly consider switching to PHP 8 as soon as possible.

With PHP 8, you not only get enhanced security but also many more technical possibilities and better performance. For instance, PHP 8 can handle up to 18% more requests per second, providing better performance for your digital solution. Unfortunately, it can be a bit technical to determine whether your server is running PHP 7.4, but if you are tech-savvy, we have provided a link below to a small guide and a link for more information on the upgrade:
