Welcome to the new Internet, same as the old one.

As of today PHP7.4 no longer has any security support provided by the language developers. If something breaks, it's staying broke.




What happens to these sites now?


probably not much because most sites are not owned by professionals, rather photographers trying to make a homepage for example. But I believe a lot of the spam comes from compromised servers.

So the effect of PHP disregarding certain versions makes Wordpress' job harder which negatively impacts the entire internet. Most websites on the internet are wordpress and WP is the most attacked engine anywhere

Does wordpress have no plans to upgrade then or am I too stupid to understand this? Or, do people have wordpress sites and they choose to use PHP over other things?
When I think of a wordpress site I think of a basic blog format which I assumed didn't requre programming knowledge, something functional but basic. The one that comes to mind immediately was the MoyaiSubs one which I followed for Mewkledreamy subs.

If security issues are such a concern, and keeping up to date with the latest PHP version is so important to keep one's code secure. Why do the PHP devs make it so upgrading are always breaking everything and require immense effort to actually upgrade code to the latest version?


>Most websites on the internet are wordpress
can they afford to migrate to something else or everything going to break heptadimensionally?

It's not just PHP, this is the same for most of the "scripting" languages like python and lua. They don't have the mentality to keep backwards compatibility.
