Choose the latest version of PHP
and database servers

Using the latest versions of PHP, MariaDB and PostgreSQL software provides better performance, the widest range of functionality and a higher level of website security.

PHP

PHP Hypertext Preprocessor

PHP is a popular programming language designed to create websites and web applications. It works on the server side, offering a number of useful tools for both beginners and advanced webmasters.

The undeniable advantages of PHP are simplicity and effectiveness. Thanks to this, PHP is found in virtually all types of websites, starting from blogs, through online stores or information services, and ending with extensive portals of the largest companies and institutions.

Having an up-to-date and supported version of PHP ensures much faster operation of the website, but ultimately security is the most important factor that we should take into account when deciding to use only those versions of PHP that have official support from its creators.

The graph shows the results of speed tests of the same website, performed on one server, using different PHP versions. The obtained results clearly show the advantage of the newer versions of PHP over the older ones.

It should be noted that websites generated by PHP 8.3 run over 4x faster compared to PHP 5.3. Is it important? Yes, because the speed of loading, and thus the efficiency of the website, translates directly into the satisfaction of users visiting such a website, as well as better positioning of the website in search engines.

Databases

A database is a collection of information that is stored in a structured manner in tables. Tables can store various data, e.g. entries about users or orders in an online store, blog content or website visit statistics. Databases are most often used by scripts (e.g. in PHP), on the basis of which a website is generated. The scripts that create the website can not only read this data, but also update, change, add or delete it.

The latest database servers with the support of their developers, among which provides MariaDB 10.11 and PostgreSQL 16, offer users higher performance, new functionalities and a higher level of security compared to server versions that no longer have this support.
