Is your WordPress PHP 7 compatible?

Support > Hosting > PHP settings

Since soon only the PHP 7 versions will be supported on our servers, you should definitely test your WordPress installation, the plugins and your theme for compatibility with PHP 7.

Proceed as follows:

1. WordPress Login

Call up your WordPress login page and log in with your access data.

2. Dashboard overview

The Dashboard page appears. Select «Plugins» in the menu and then «Add new» in the submenu block.

3. Add Plugins

You will automatically be redirected to the «Add plugins» overview. Enter «PHP Compatibility Checker» under «Keyword» in the search box.

Various plugins that could match this keyword will be listed immediately. For the plugin «PHP Compatibility Checker» click on the button «Install Now».

4. Activate Plugin

After some time the blue «Activate» button appears. Click on it.

5. Choose PHP Checker

On the «Tools» menu, click «PHP Compatibility».

6. Run scan

You will be taken to the «PHP Compatibility Checker» overview page. Under «Scan Options» the check of PHP version 7.0 is set as default, and under Plugin/Theme status «Only scan active plugins and themes».

If necessary, adjust the desired PHP version for your scan. Then click on «Scan site».

7. Scan running

The scan may take a few minutes. Please wait until the scan is complete. (The scan time depends on the installed or active plugins and themes on your WordPress page.)

8. Results

After a successful scan, the results are listed immediately. All compatible plugins are marked with a green «Compatible» button. If a plugin or theme is not compatible, this is indicated by a yellow «Warning» button. And if the server timeout occurs, a grey «Unknow» button may appear.

You can download the report by clicking on the «Download Report» button.

9. Replace Plugins

Please replace, as far as possible, the uncompatible plugins and themes with current and compatible plugins.
