PHP 7.4 Now By Default

January 7, 2020

As WordPress now supports PHP 7.4 by default, and PHP 7.4 is much faster (and more secure) than the previous PHP 7.2 used in our images, we have added 7.4 as the new default.

In addition, we have also upgraded all previous customer modules to this new release, as well as adding the following performance/security tweaks to the nginx.conf file.

The difference this makes to performance should be quite noticeable!
