It is a good news Paul!

you are making vB a new level by supporting PHP7 and mariadb for vB4.

Just a small issue for me is I could not use it now because there are 2 addons on my forum could not run after moved to vB7 thus I have to use php 5.6 now.

I wanted to move my forum to a dedicated server to run with php7 and mariadb.

I PMed/reply to the authors of 2 those addons on vB to fix their codes to run with php7 but seem they left the forum and no responses.

is there a way to fix the mods I am using (it is just a small plugin), vB team can support fix some addons (available for downloading on this forum) to run with php7?

The only issues I experienced when moving to PHP 7.x were a few deprecation warnings, and replacing mysql() with mysqli(). These are generally easy to fix. If you can supply the exact error messages, I can perhaps point you in the right direction to fixing the issues. :)

Can you share how to fix it and what exactly is error?
I remembered i saw it in admincp but I turn off error reported in vb to hide it.

Thanks MarkFL in advance for this, I will PM you 2 addon links ( sorry I don't want to share them in public because it is better for secure)
If you can fix them, please support!

I handled them on a case by case basis. None of the errors came from any vB core files, those have been expertly updated to avoid any kind of deprecation warnings.

They only came from installed products that used deprecated PHP functions, and it involved editing the product plugins/external files.

I'll be glad to take a look tomorrow, as I have taken off my coder's hat for the night. :)

VBG now has the Beta 3 releases for 3.8.11 & 4.2.5.

Just a note for anyone not aware.

Quote:

I finish at IB on Friday 26th May.

The Final Releases of 4.2.5 & 3.8.11 are scheduled for Wednesday 17th May.
The next release is Beta 4, in 1 or 2 weeks time, there will be at least 1 RC around April time.
Other than that, there will probably be a couple of other releases (depends on what bugs get logged really).

If you find bugs related to PHP 7, please log them, or they may not get fixed.
It will be too late once I'm gone, I dont expect anyone else to do anything on them.
There will almost certainly be no more 3x or 4x releases, except necessary patches [e.g. security issues].

Does you leaving affect anything else besides PHP 7 changes/fixes for the older vBulletin versions?

our web hosting forum is running on this version.

It is running on php 7.1 and mariadb, https and installed some other hosting addons.

I don't see problems with it except some mods could need to fixed to be compatible with php 7.1

Looks like a plug in.. I will check server logs..

This must have been something cached after the upgrade because it is gone now and I cannot reporoduce.

What is PHP 7.2?

The latest PHP version is 7.1.3 http://php.net/downloads.php which I am using for my forum.

You should try to upgrade php 7 to php 7.1.3 :)
