     106In brief: The support team is planning the upgrade of our servers from Debian 6 to Debian 7, which has important implications for your web sites. The people responsible for maintaining your sites should ensure that your web software will be compatible with PHP 5.4. Failure to ensure compatibility may result in your web site failing to work properly.
     107
     108Greetings May First/People Link Member!
     109
     110As part of the process of maintaining our shared infrastructure, it is crucial that we upgrade obsolete software to fix security holes and bugs and introduce new features.
     111
     112Our servers run the Debian GNU/Linux operating systems, which is free software[1]. The Debian software packages, like in any operating systems, are constantly updated. However, Debian always maintains a "stable" version that only accepts minimal, security-related changes. This stable version is replaced approximately every 2 years. The stable version known as Debian 7 (aka "wheezy") was released on May 3, 2013 and replaced version 6 (aka "squeeze"), which as become obsolete.
     113
     114It is imperative for our server administrators to upgrade all our servers and this change has important implication for all members: the upgrade, which will proceed according to the schedule below, includes a change in the version of PHP, a very common web-programming language (from PHP 5.3 to PHP 5.4). Many older web sites programmed in PHP may not properly function with this newer version of the programming language. In particular, web sites running Drupal version 5 or lower will most likely break unless they are first upgraded.
     115
     116The support team has written the following calendar for upgrades, based on the name of your primary server (if you do not know the primary server of your web site, please login to the control panel - https://members.mayfirst.org/cp - and look for the label "Your primary host is").

     176Those members unable to upgrade your web site according to this schedule, may ask the support team to move your site to a server that will maintain an older version of PHP through August 2014.
