Run JetBackup on non-EOL versions of PHP

thall shared this idea 3 months ago
Already Exists

The built-in PHP binary for JetBackup is /usr/local/jetapps/usr/bin/php73, which is PHP 7.3

PHP 7.3 has been EOL For several years. Running EOL PHP versions pose a security risk.

Can you update JetBackup to support PHP versions that continue to get PHP security updates?

Hello thall,

We are pleased to announce that with the release of JetBackup 5.3 to our public ALPHA tier, JetBackup now utilizes PHP 8.1! Please do note that this release is currently still on our ALPHA tier, and we do not recommend this to be used on any production server.

For more information on the latest updates included in v5.3.0, please visit our changelog page with the following link:

PHP 8.1 upgrade

Thank you for your continued support!

Best Regards,

The JetApps Team
