PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor (or simply PHP) is a general-purpose programming language originally designed for web development.

Each release branch of PHP is fully supported for two years from its initial stable release. During this period, bugs and security issues that have been reported are fixed and are released in regular point releases.

After this two year period of active support, each branch is then supported for an additional year for critical security issues only. Releases during this period are made on an as-needed basis: there may be multiple point releases, or none, depending on the number of reports.

More information is available on the PHP website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.

You can check the version that you are currently using by running:
php --version

You can submit an improvement to this page on GitHub. This page has a corresponding Talk Page.
