What is PHP and why should you care? - NEO West WordPress Meetup

KHM Travel Group 1152 Pearl Road , Brunswick, (map)

Slides: https://megabyterose.com/what-is-php/

Very Important Info From WordPress Team: http://bit.ly/wpneo-php7

~ 36% of WordPress sites run on version 5.6, but it was released 28 Aug 2014. The current stable version is 7.2, which was released 30 Nov 2017. You should be working towards upgrading to 7.2 as your sites will be left vulnerable to hackers and you would also see a 3-4x speed increase by upgrading. If you have any questions, DM me or contact a developer and/or your web host for assistance.
