This blog has been moved to a new server this night. Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this server move. The new server infrastructure is more reliable and even faster than the old one.
If you are moving a MyBB installation to a new server, you’ll need to transfer all files by FTP and copy the database to the new host. Continue reading Mybboard.biz moved to a new server
A lot of shared webhosts are currently migrating from PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.4 to PHP 5.5 or PHP 5.6. PHP 7 is fairly new, web software is slowly adapted to support the new standard – mostly beside supporting old standards like PHP 5.6.
The MyBB team announced that MyBB 2.0 will no longer support the PHP 5.X series. The minimum PHP version required to run MyBB 2.0 will be PHP 7.
PHP 7 is faster and more secure and brings up some nice new features, the MyBB devs want to use. But PHP 7 is not that widespread at the moment. A lot of PHP extensions like Imagick or Ioncube have not yet been stable updated to PHP 7 and a lot of webhosters have only installed the core PHP 7 version for advertisement reasons.
It’ll take some time until MyBB 2.0 will be released – we still expect some alpha, beta and rc versions before. But if MyBB 2.0 will be ready, you should have a webhost supporting PHP 7. If you are using other web software with MyBB, make sure it’ll be updated for PHP 7 too.
The official MyBB blog at blog.mybb.com is expired. It looks like the wordpress hosting has not been paid and therefor the blog is now offline. If you are trying to visit the official MyBB blog, you’ll get the following message:
We informed the MyBB staff about this issue. Hopefully they’ll restore the blog soon. Let’s hope that this was just an accident and does not reveal difficulties in the MyBB staff or project. The official community forums and the website itself is still online.
Update: The blog is back online!
