Update or not?

It's lots of versions of server, php and sql server. A little time ago I felt it wise to update to php version 7 of sequrity reasons, and when I was at it I updated both the server and wampserver.

Then I resently have been having difficulties with one of my webs and unable to solve it util I tried to switch back to an earlier version of php (I'm still at version 7).

I can see there are newer version than I had , and many many updates.

Are there any difference in the updates? Is there any "wise" rules for updating?

Hi,

> to switch back to an earlier version of php (I'm still at version 7).
To see what's wrong, the best way is to read the log files.

Yes,

First Rule for WordPress users: Check that the version of WordPress will run on a specific version of PHP.
Older versions of WordPress may not run on the latest versions of PHP

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.1.8 32bit & 64bit)
<Apache versions MULTIPE> <PHP versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Versions MULTIPLE>
<MariaDB versions MULTIPLE> <phpMyAdmin versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Workbench 8.0.16>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin
Get your Apache/MySQL/mariaDB/PHP ADDONs here from the WAMPServer alternate Repo
