Pagely Engineers will be performing PHP Lifecycle Management for all websites currently set to use the "Upcoming" version label (currently 8.2) in Atomic. For more information on how you can view or manage your PHP version preferences, you may check our help guide:

On February 6th - 7th 2024, the version corresponding to "Upcoming" in Atomic will change from 8.2 to 8.3. Your WordPress applications will automatically be upgraded to use PHP 8.3, which is still supported through November 23, 2026. Excluding any compatibility issues that may arise, the impact to website availability will be very brief - less than 2 minutes per app - while the version change is being applied.

Currently, the lowest WordPress version that supports PHP 8.3 is 6.4, because of this we will be keeping apps on the “Upcoming“ setting which are using WordPress version 6.4 and up. If an application isn’t on WordPress 6.4 we will move it to the “Latest” setting which will be the new label for PHP 8.2. More information about the supported PHP versions by WordPress can be found here:

PHP 8.2 will be moved under the tag "Latest", in order to avoid compatibility issues we will also automatically re-tag all apps which are using the "Latest" setting to "Stable" which will be the new tag for PHP 8.1.

During the maintenance on February 6th the following changes will be done:
- The “Latest“ setting will be changed from PHP 8.1 to PHP 8.2
- The “Upcoming“ setting will be changed from PHP 8.2 to PHP 8.3
- Apps on “Upcoming” and using WordPress versions below 6.4 will be changed to “Latest“
- Apps on "Latest" will be changed to "Stable"

You can avoid being updated to PHP 8.3 by changing to the “Latest“ setting beforehand which will be the new label for PHP 8.2, please note that until the maintenance the “Latest“ setting is set to PHP 8.1 so during this period your app will be on PHP 8.1. As with any software upgrade, there is a chance of unforeseen compatibility problems that did not surface during our own testing. Our testing is designed to identify hard failures where the code cannot execute at all. Other, more subtle compatibility problems could still occur when the upgrade to PHP 8.3 is applied, where only certain components are not functioning correctly, or new non-fatal warning messages appear. If you experience these kinds of issues after the upgrade, please contact Pagely Support for assistance:

Thank you for your understanding and do not hesitate to reach out to our team with any questions or concerns. We're here to help!
