    I agree - a massive performance difference, I don't see any page load delay at all.

    I use a VM running Centos WebPanel, built from Centos 7, which incorporates PHP 7.1.7, MariaDB 10.1.25 and Apache 2.4.27.

    In Centos WebPanel there is a new PHP Selector feature, which enables automatic installation of 8 different PHP versions and their dependencies, which can be individually configured. PHP versions assignable by user, site or individual folders within a site.

    Its great to be able to keep the legacy apps ticking along whist supporting the leading edge stuff such as VB5. I highly recommend!

    btw multi php is easier than ever nowdays also...either with apache or docker software...

    with one project i use apache 2.4, with the other we use docker...

    on the apache 2.4 i have a vb5 and vb4 running fine...under php 7 and 5.6 respectively...

    the docker was employed to accomodate out of date php versions, with upgrading ones...for in this case is php 5.2 and 5.6 lol...

    Presently running vB 5.2.2 on the minimum version of php allowed, and it works great. I know eventually I will need to upgrade, but am thinking of doing it only when I have too.

    Are there any functionality benefits of upgrading now?
    I wanted to upgrade to php7 but can not at this time because vB4 didn't support properly php7.

    So just waiting for fixes from vB team for vB4 so that I can use PHP7 for my forums
