compatible with PHP 5.6? - Urgent
« on: July 30, 2018, 20:47:52 pm »
Is there a 1.9 release that is compatible with PHP 5.6?  Webhost upgraded the ez-apache on one of the servers I was using...  This is urgent. Please advise.

will 3.12 be a direct upgrade? or do i have todo all upgrades in sequence? i.e. is there a path from 1.9>3.12 (or 2.6?)

its a migration -- not an upgrade
no need to go to VM2.6

needs to be done slowly and carefully with proper research and planning  -- you need new extensions and a template
expect some quirks with attributes and custom fields

the std. migrator most use is from Daycounts
