#7126 closed feature request (fixed)

Bump MINIMUM_PHP for 6.3

Reported by: johnbillion's profile johnbillion Owned by: sergeybiryukov's profile SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: Priority: high
Component: API Keywords:


Josepha has confirmed that we'll go ahead and bump the minimum supported version of PHP to 7.0.0 for WordPress 6.3.

The MINIMUM_PHP constant for ServeHappy needs to be bumped accordingly. Is there anything else that needs to be changed so that the updates API functions as expected?

In r20612-dotorg:

API: Core Version Check: Specify WP 6.3+ as PHP7 minimum.


The version-check response now shows the correct PHP minimum version after the above.

In r20613-dotorg:

API: Core Version Check: Offer WordPress 6.2.xx to the remaining PHP 5.6.20-5.6.9999
     users upon WordPress 6.3's release.

WordPress 5.1 is offered to version of PHP older than 5.6.20.


That doesn't currently change the API response, but upon the first 6.3.x release that triggers a 6.2.x release being made, the remaining WP 6.2 sites will see both 6.3.x & 6.2.x, with only the latter being an update destination.
(NOTE: This behaviour is only present for STABLE releases, if you're running a development version, a beta version, etc, you do NOT get an older-version offering, this is specifically for end-users)
