Does it affect me and my business?
This upgrade is likely to affect any website with installations of WordPress, Joomla, Google Sites, BT Sites or other CMS systems. Should your website incorporate for example a WordPress self hosted Blog or Website that is installed on your web space, it must be upgraded to the latest version of php. The upgrade is likely to affect your scripts and plugins too so all those must also be upgraded also.

What is PHP?
Php is a server side language which is used in website design and allows important functions of any website to work correctly. With the demands of today’s businesses more complicated coding is required for forms, blogs, collection of data, databases, graphics, video, sliders, website galleries and more….
Designed Websites through website designers who are on the ball will be fully aware of this huge development and will cater for it for its customers through their website maintenance contracts, other designers may charge for this as it is development that you need, takes hours and will make them money……. this upgrade is not in the control of individual webmasters and akin to the switch off of Anologue TV.
Can your business afford not to upgrade……… not likely!
For business CMS websites and blog owners who are unfortunately not with a designer but have a ‘template’ website that they administer themselves, this upgrade may prove to be a big problem and could lead to loss of earnings.
Don’t Panic – With WDD you will be just fine :), all of our websites are designed and self hosted, with backup servers working to protect you.
Upgrades will be performed out of normal business hours so there should be minimal affect to your business, each business will undertake this development one at a time, a development notice will be temporarily placed on your site during this limited time.
Should any site owner have a preference on the development date please get in touch before this weekend so that your site development can be programmed and appropriate cost invoiced.
All sites, regardless of the level of maintenance contract or pay as you go service level agreement will, in thhis instance* receive this upgrade Free of Charge and all sites will be fully backed up prior to any development undertaken.
*please note that future developments of this nature may incur a development charge.
