not sure what this means exactly, but got an email from dreamhost stating they're going to start updating domains this month
hopefully i have time to test this out locally before it happens on the public server

it will if the site uses anything in php5 that's deprecated (and removed) in php7 (which is not unlikely)

i think i had to upgrade all the mysql stuff for the 5.6 upgrade already, but not totally sure i won't have to again
looks like the exception handler will need updating
https://www.php.net/manual/en/migration70.php
also some tests on foreach uses
otherwise should be ok
i have time tomorrow to get it up and running locally on 7

remember to pool together your resources of your friends and discord peeps if you are feeling overwhelmed.

php5 => php7 is kinda rough, good luck

iirc the mysql stuff for php7 is different and requires a major upgrade (lots of deprecated/obsolete functions, etc.)

on a good note, battleofthebits.org will consume way less system resources afterwards. it will also be more memory efficient. i have no idea how these things impacts the website however since it's managed hosting(?)
