I have upgraded Xampp to version 7.2.1, coming from 5.6. However, I am used to creating websites in Dreamweaver CS4, the wysiwyg-way with minimal PHP-changes done manually. Since my hosting service is no longer supporting PHP 5.6 or 7.0, my site doesn't work anymore. Dreamweaver generated all the PHP-code itself but I'm having trouble finding out how I can get Dreamweaver to generate PHP 7.2-code.

Database server

Server: 127.0.0.1 via TCP/IP

Server type: MariaDB

Server version: 10.1.30-MariaDB - mariadb.org binary distribution

Protocol version: 10

User: root@localhost

Server charset: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8)

Web server

Apache/2.4.29 (Win32) OpenSSL/1.1.0g PHP/7.2.1

Database client version: libmysql - mysqlnd 5.0.12-dev - 20150407 -

PHP extension: mysqliDocumentation curlDocumentation mbstringDocumentation

PHP version: 7.2.1

The most likely answer will probably be to upgrade my Dreamweaver application I guess, but to which version?

Any insights would be much appreciated!

Your site has reached obsolescence.  It's time to rebuild with modern code.   Upgrading to Dreamweaver CC wo't help you.

OPTIONS:

  • Hire an experienced developer.
  • Pay for commercial extensions.
  • Take online courses in modern PHP 7+ and re-code the site manually.
  • Rebuild your site with WordPress or some other online content management system.
  • Find another web host who still uses PHP 5.6 (short term solution).

The answer is none.

As you have found hosting providers are moving to php 7+ now, as anything before that is dead even for security updates. Dw 2018 introduced support for php7, but there are no updated SB's, (as far as we know) which means you must write your own, or purchase 3rd part extensions if you do not wish to code yourself.

dmxzone, (uses pdo) and webassist, (uses mysqli) both produce extensions for Dw that can be used with php7+.

To further clarify the difference between the two extensions,

Webassist: database -> PHP to HTML -> browser - called coupled to database

DMXzone: database -> PHP to API (JSON) -> HTML+JS -> browser - called decoupled from database
