Updates and releases

One-click update to PHP 5.6 available on Simple Hosting

If you have a PHP 5.4/MySQL Simple Hosting instance you can now upgrade to PHP 5.6 in a single click. All you need to do is go to your instance’s control panel and click on the “Update” link.

This operation will move everything over to PHP 5.6 automatically, though you might experience some issues during the next few days as we still consider the feature to be in Beta. We also highly suggest checking our guide to learn more about the differences between versions and about the issues you might encounter, since you won’t be able to rollback this update.

Users of other types of PHP instances, such as PostgreSQL or MongoDB databases, unfortunately will still have to upgrade manually. Our documentation also includes instructions and examples to help with manually migrating your instances

As always, don’t hesitate to contact our Customer Care team, join us in our IRC channel #gandi (on Freenode) or tweet us @gandibar if you have any issues.
