We’ll be marking PHP 5.6 as End of Life after December 2016. The PHP development team will no longer provide any active development or security fixes after that date. Continued use of PHP 5.6 brings with it the risk of security vulnerabilities, which compounds as the version goes further and further out of date. We strongly recommend that you migrate to a newer, supported version of PHP, such as version 7.0 or 7.1. Both of these versions are available in the cPanel interface.
