Podcast Episode 195: How To Upgrade Your WordPress Database To The Latest Version of PHP – Data Driven Daily Tip 296

By: Paul Hickey, Founder and Lead Strategist

One of the things about having a WordPress website is that there are several factors that control your website’s health, well-being and performance.

One of them that controls your site’s compatibility with Plug-ins – among other things – is the version of PHP that you’re running.

Now, if you’ve been on a Managed WordPress host like GoDaddy, BlueHost, HostGator or even WPEngine for several years, there’s a good chance your website is running an older version of PHP, like 5.0 or 5.2.

WPEngine is the only host that is requiring updates, allowing you to test on a one click staging environment, and identifying incompatible plug-ins that will break once they upgrade your site.

But GoDaddy Managed WordPress makes it easy to upgrade as well.

This video shows you how.

Thanks for reading, watching and listening, and have a great day!
