PHP 7.3 was released early this month and is now available on all of our servers! As with prior versions, you can easily change the PHP version per cPanel account via the “Select PHP Version” option in cPanel.
PHP 7.3.0 comes with numerous improvements and new features such as:
- Flexible Heredoc and Nowdoc Syntax
- PCRE2 Migration
- Multiple MBString Improvements
- LDAP Controls Support
- Several Deprecations
The migration guide is available in the PHP Manual. Please consult it for the detailed list of new features and backward incompatible changes. For 3rd party applications, it’s best to confirm that they support PHP 7.3 before making the switch. However, if you run into any issues you can quickly and easily revert back to your prior version.
