What's new in Mys v1.3.6: PHP 7/8 compatibility

Threads / Messages
The release date for Mys v1.3.6 is getting closer, which will be within 1 to 1 and half month from now. Although the next release will not add any major new features, it will introduce a series of QoL updates. The first one I will bring up here, is the long awaited compatibility update for PHP 7/8. As most of you are aware of, the current Mysidia Adoptables aint compatible with PHP 7, and you will need a PHP 5.3-5.6 server to run it. As PHP 5 has long been outdated, it makes things inconvenient for some users who cannot use MysidiaHost. Also it limits the kind of third party library/software you can use together with Mysidia Adoptables.

Fortunately, this will no longer be an issue in the upcoming Mys 1.3.6, it will be compatible with PHP 7/8. The minimum version has also been bumped from PHP 5.3 to 5.4, but I suspect that most of you will be running PHP 5.6 at least. The demo can be visited at the link below, and the phpinfo page for the demos directory indicate that the script runs happily on PHP 7.4.21:


Once Mys v1.3.6 is officially released, new accounts on MysidiaHost will be using PHP 7.4 instead. Users on old accounts may request upgrade to Mys v1.3.6 and PHP 7.4 if you do not have a heavily modified site, otherwise you may have to do this manually. Manual upgrading from Mys v1.3.5 to v1.3.6 will be quite tricky, I will try to help some of the users during September to make the process more smooth.

At this moment the PHP 7/8 compatibility update is complete for the main site, while I am still working on the ACP which will be done in 1-2 weeks. I will also introduce a few more QoL updates before the beta/RC release in early August. Stay tuned.
