PHP 8.2

We are preparing to roll out PHP 8.2 to our platform. Here is a list with lots of numbers and dots.

Run down

Business as usual: This platform update will affect all Apps (Uni and Pro). The expected downtime for App web delivery is up to 20 minutes, we aim for a few minutes. We will run the updates sequentially, App after App. Pro Apps on production plans are planned to have near-to-zero downtime.

For the deployment services (Git, SSH and SFTP) we expect a maximum downtime of around 30 minutes. Also the updates will run sequentially, so the individual per App down-time likely will be less.

Please keep an eye on our status page where we are going to post intermediate updates.
