PHP 7 CMSB - Download Alpha version here and help us test
We've got our first alpha build of a CMS Builder that supports PHP 7. It's alpha (that comes before beta), so don't use it on any production sites. But you can download it here: https://www.interactivetools.com/order/download.php (just select the version that says ALPHA in the name).
Here's some info on the changes we've made. PHP supports two mysql libraries named "mysql" and "mysqli" (i for improved). We originally wrote CMSB v1.00 using mysqli but for compatibility reasons switched it to mysql (no i) shortly after release. Anyways, fast forward to now, the recently released PHP 7 now no longer supports the original mysql extension. So we've switched everything back to using mysqli.
A couple things to note, any plugins or 3rd party code that directly uses the mysql extensions will no longer work. We're going to look into adding support for those in the next alpha release.
Please give this a try and let me know any feedback or bug reports. Also note that you can also test this on a PHP 5.6 server, we need to make sure it works on all supported PHP versions old and new.
I've patched these issues and released "beta1". You can download it here:
Note: Only the /lib/ folder needs to be re-uploaded if you've installed the previous version. Let me know if you run into any other issues.
I've released "Beta 2" with a few more fixes. I'm now running this version on PHP 7.1 on my machine all the time now.
You can download it here: https://www.interactivetools.com/order/download.php
Note: Only the /lib/ folder needs to be re-uploaded if you've installed a previous version. Let me know if you run into any other issues.
OK did a fresh install on both PHP7 and PHP7.1 and both worked and all looking great no issues so far.
