Moodle and PHP
This content of this page has been updated and migrated to the new Moodle Developer Resources. The information contained on the page should no longer be seen up-to-date.
New PHP versions are released every year and come with important improvements and changes compared with previous versions. Moodle tries to support them as soon as possible, always matching them with our own scheduled release plans.
This page contains the current status of support for every PHP version and Moodle versions. For details, follow also the epic links below that combine all the changes that were made in Moodle to ensure PHP compatibility. (Note: you must be logged in to tracker to see issues in Epics)
