Announcing Piwik will end PHP 5.3 support in six months (May 2015)

This post is an important announcement concerning all Piwik users who are using PHP 5.3.x to run Piwik. Piwik project will end support for PHP 5.3 in about six months in May 2015.

All Piwik users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest PHP 5.5 or PHP 5.6 which brings huge benefits in terms of performance, memory usage, security and overall stability.

Why is this important?

The PHP version 5.3 has reached its End of Life (EOL). Using this old version may expose you to security vulnerabilities and bugs that have been fixed in more recent versions of PHP.

If you are still using PHP 5.3, note that Piwik will stop supporting this PHP version in May 2015. Around this time Piwik will start requiring PHP 5.4.

Upgrade your PHP version before it’s too late!
