PHP 7.1 was released earlier this month. It's hard to believe that the 7.0 has been in the wild for nearly a year already!

Are you recommending people to use it with your web hosting services yet? From what I've seen online, many people are still pushing the 5.x branch and not really recommending the 7.x branch for hosting clients.

There are many hosts that allow you to change between various versions on the fly, but quite a large number not offering 7.x as an option.

Are you using it? Are you seeing the speed reductions on client sites that the software is supposed to provide?

Making 7.1 the default isn't a very wise choice considering it can break compatibility with a lot of platforms. These things need to be given time in order to get compatible.

I've tested PHP 7 personally and was actually amazed at the performance boost it provided compared to previous PHP versions. I've also seen people report the same countless times.

PHP isn't one of those things you hit the switch on right away making it the default version. It doesn't rely on a single developer, it relies on thousands of developers updating their platforms.

That is true, but if you marry this up with WHM 6 then you will be fine as you can assign specific PHP versions to individual accounts, so if 7.1 breaks a platform/script then you can assign that client with a php version that works for them

Oh certainly I'm not saying that someone should move directly to PHP 7.1.0, and I'd never recommend anyone going to a ".0" subversion of any release, however PHP 7.1.x has been out a long time.

PHP 7.1.x branch is now at the 7.0.14 branch, and for the most part, the big potential bugs have all be squashed.

We've assisted about 40 websites at this stage to make the transition to PHP 7.0.x and so far, so good. Some of the changes have involved removing old plugins for WordPress or entire re-installations and rebuilds for clients on Magento where an upgrade and patching would have been more costly.

Curious to see if hosting companies are able to squeeze a few more clients on their servers now with the boost in processing.

I will recommend upgrading PHP to 7, if you have easyapache installed on the server, you may upgrade the version from easyapche 3 to easyapche 4 by which you will get an additional option called MultiPHP. The major improvements in PHP7 over PHP5 can increase the speed with which your scripts run by as much as 30-40%, This will add the ability to manage multiple PHP versions from WHM. You can set a system-wide default, manage PHP settings on a per-PHP-version basis, and define PHP versions on a per-vhost basis.

not 100% true as to upgrade to PHP 7 you need WHM 6 and in WHM 6 cPanel has removed easyapache 3

Why not, it has had significant exposure and there isn't any poor reports.

Valid point (we do offer the ability for clients to select which PHP version they use) though again, you have to give time for apps to become compatible especially when you get to the size that A2 is at. Can you imagine the ticket list if we just flipped the switch ?

Its depend on customer so I left this for customer to chose PHP setting by them-self.

PHP 7 work better with Wordpress, Speed is quiet fast but not so fast so it will look like a normal speed for you.

PHP 5.6 is much better because of various software does not even migrate their software to PHP 7 and still use 5.x
