It's a tough call to make on one hand support old software that is years outdate. Or we can use newer PHP versions which has some better functions which can lead to better designed forum software long term.

If you're stuck on EL6 and can't update, I recommend using the IUS repositories. They are managed by a solid community and do not replace system packages, but conflict with them so you have to actively replace the old ones. Just install the repo and replace the php packages with the php56u, php70u, or php71u ones.

If you don't want to replace system packages, you could look at Software Collections, a project managed by RedHat to allow side-by-side installs of different software versions. It's a bit more complex, but could work very well if you can't replace system PHP packages.

Thank you so very much for this update. You guys are the best of the best.
For all those who might want to know... Softaculous did not automatically update.
System sent an email.
Had to do manually in the Softaculous backend.

It'll be the lack of PHP 5.4... again.

I'm not sure if it's related to this or not, but as soon as I updated to 2.0.14 I started getting a bunch of spam bots on my forum. I had only installed a theme recently but it's been removed anyways.

The PHP version requirement for this patch is 5.4.0 or newer. Please ensure that your host is currently in compliance with this or ask them to upgrade your PHP version.

Not happy with this!

Why this choice has been made on a small update and not only on a branch update??

For some sites i must stay to smf 2.0.13 for now so. Great news thanks.

It's hardly a small update and it's the decision the team made. Sorry it's causing you grief.

It should have been a branch choice (upgrade) and not in a patch update or anything else. An add is surely good (php 7), but a remove is never a small choice....for smf users too!

Really sad and angry on this choice of update.

You should upgrade PHP or ask your host to. PHP 5.3 is really old (EOL'ed quite a while ago), insecure and should generally not be used in production anymore.

And it could not always be updated. It should have been removed on a branch choice.  I will remove smf from certains sites on certains hosters cause your update on the branch 2.0. It should have been for the 2.1 branch this remove. Remove done now.

A host that has PHP 5.3 still and don't offer the possibility to change to 5.4, 5.5 or 5.6 is a bad host IMHO, most of the ones I saw helping others have at least the possibility to change, and most of them get 5.4, 5.5 and 5.6

Need help with PHP, HTML, CSS, Themes or MODs?

As you can see, a branch choice was not the way to go. If we can't change your opinion, so be it but the situations presented are quite clear. Besides, out of thousands (millions?) of users, you are the only one insisting on this. That alone should tell you something. ;)
