Cheatsheet for Upgrading PHP Sites

The change that recently rocked the dev world was the sunsetting of PHP 5.x and moving PHP to version 7. (Don't ask us where version 6 is.) Also in the horizon is the trasition to newer releases of version 7.

Not that many organizations are prepared to deal with the change. So the moodLearning team has prepared a cheatsheet to cover some important technical changes to make it easier for people to transition to the new PHP version.

PHP 5.x to 7

Deprecated Functions in php5

Sample

<?php
 
class Sample {
 
   function Sample() {
 
       echo 'Hello World';
 
   }
 
}
?>

Fix for php7

If your class has a constructor having the same name as your class name, then it is now deprecated in PHP 7. Change constructor to __construct

Sample

<?php
 
class Sample{
 
   function __construct() {
 
       echo 'Hello World!';
 
   }
 
}
 
?>
