Php 8 supported

From which version is php 8 supported (and is there also a difference between php 8.0, 8.1, 8.2)

Pulse 6.x versions are PHP 8 supported. Pulse 5.x versions are PHP7 supported. The difference between PHP 8.0, 8.1 and 8.2 are minor version updates to PHP 8, which means it includes bug fixes and small improvements to the language. These are backward compatible.

Thanks, what is the best way to upgrade from Pulse 5.3.12 tot Pulse 6?

There are a couple of ways to upgrade:

  • Incremental ie 5.3.12 to 5.4 and then to 6.0
  • Directly upgrade to 6
  • Clean install on your FTP server and then copy the data (page, blog, etc), template and any custom plugin/tag files and redo the config options

To upgrade, go to your Pulse Dashboard and click on your profile icon in the right-hand corner. The dropdown menu will have an item labeled "Update". Click on this and there will be options for you to update your Pulse CMS install. We recommend uploading the CMS file from your computer when doing an update.

Please check with your hosting provider to make sure that they have PHP 8 when doing the upgrade.

To test (install) Pulse6 on localhost or server (php7), edit the script "admin/index.php".

Edit the code:
if (version_compare(phpversion(), '8.0.0', '<')) {
New:
if (version_compare(phpversion(), '7.0.0', '<')) {
