Migration to PHP 7 is now complete

2022-01-05
I'm pleased to announce that all websites have been migrated to the new PHP version. It may seem like a no-brainer for some, but for me it was quite a challenge because of the framework I was using. I had to learn how CodeIgniter 4 works and rewrite all the pages using it. The applications I wrote [...]

The hardest part was moving the pages from phpBlueDragon, we had to rewrite the whole site and re-write the admin panel. I created a panel, in which PL and EU domains are available, along [...]


Moving a website to PHP 7 and 8

2021-09-24
The time has come to say goodbye to PHP version 5. Although the CodeIgniter software will run on the new PHP version I prefer not to risk that the day will come when PHP version 5 will be disabled due to incompatibility. That is why I am moving all my sites to CodeIgniter version 4. I really like [...]
