Recently a new Joomla! version (3.5) was released. We are really excited about it because it offers new features and also fully supports PHP 7.
Faster Joomla! Sites via PHP 7
Did we mention that we were the first web hosting company to offer PHP 7 last year when it was released? And, oh boy, sites that use PHP 7 are so much faster. We are happy that now Joomla! officially supports the latest PHP release and our clients can take advantage of this. If you want to configure your site to use PHP 7 then you can use our PHP Version Manager tool in your cPanel to do this. Our article on how to use the cPanel PHP version manager explains this.
NOTE: If you are using the SiteGround SuperCacher Memcached option and you would like to use PHP 7, then please make sure that your Joomla! configuration file is updated and the $cache_handler variable is set to:
public $cache_handler = 'memcached';
For the complete list of new features introduced in 3.5 please check the official release notes.
Updating to Joomla! 3.5.1
Due to a small bug in the 3.5.0 version, which was quickly fixed, we are now updating our clients directly to version 3.5.1. All customers that have enabled the Joomla! Auto Update service are already upgraded. The rest of you need to update manually. You can check the official instructions how to do that.
