We need to upgrade our OS to CentOS 7. Which offers PHP 5.5, 5.6, and 7.0 with the possibility of installing 7.1 and 7.2
with MySql Ver 15.1 Distrib 10.2.14-MariaDB, for Linux (x86_64) using readline 5.1.
I need some advice. Can we make the leap to CenOS 7 without risking an upgrade from OpenCart 188.8.131.52?
Thank you for your advice. It does appear that OpenCart 184.108.40.206 is compatible with PHP 7.0 but I don't know what the risks are on this. I am concerned about the MySQL database migration. Any help appreciated
You may have a longer leeway being on Centos (with regards to 7.0.x) as they backport security patches, but if at all possible - get off 5.3 immediately. You're running a large number of unpatched vulnerabilities!
It's safe to assume you're on a much older version of Centos, which is also probably out of support - there have been some nasty vulnerabilities in Apache not too long ago, also.
5.3 has been dead since 2014. http://php.net/eol.php
