I have installed opencats (CATS Version 0.9.3 Inferno) in a new server with php 7.3. When I tried to run ATS, it is showing error "CATS Error: All required PHP extensions are not loaded.". It is running fine when deployed in php 5.3. How can i run opencats with latest version of php. Please help

Opencats has a minimum supported PHP version of PHP 5.5, and are working towards full PHP 7 compatibility.

Hello! We are being force migrated to PHP 7.3 (ready or not, here it comes) in our shared hosting environment. It looks like they will sunset PHP 5 in the next few weeks. Is there a timeline when 7.3 may be supported? I know there has been a ton of work to move to 7.x but I need to hatch a plan if I can't get the curves to cross.

Thanks a million!

So.. we're at 7.2 at the moment, there is at least one 7.3 patch proposed - but I'd rather step back and see where the bugs are in the 7.2 implementation first!
hi there, Im being forced to upgrade my php version at least at 7.0... Im currently using openCats 0.9.4 which doesn not support it, but I saw there is a new release of 0.9.6 which supports till 7.2.

my question is how to proceed to this upgrade, is there any guide to follow or can you give me some instructions in order to try ir in a dev environment before proceeding?

thanks in advance

Hi there,

you should be able to do an in-place upgrade. However I'd take a backup of your active running instance (software & database) and do a test upgrade on a test box first. Once you're happy it works, do it on your production box. Note that only PHP 7.2 is supported - still not 7.3 compatible!!!!

so once you have your instance available - just unpack the 0.9.6 tar.gz or zip file into a new directory (e.g. /var/www/html/opencats-0.9.6), REMOVE THE INSTALL_BLOCK directory, then navigate to the directory to run the install wizard. Provide your existing db username & password & choose to upgrade the detected installation.

Report here or on github if you have any issues!

Hi there, me again. Sorry to ask the same question, but the hosting which im using is no longer supporting old PHP versions. They are able now to use PHP 7.3, 7,4 and 8.0... is there any ETA to get opencats runnning in any of them?
