Hostgator php update has messed up all my website
Oh and hostgator support said, your site isn't compatible and will not give a refund.
As for upgrading...
That is exactly how I upgrade them, move them onto my server, run them up at PHP5.4, upgrade the core files, switch to PHP7.4 and debug the addon errors.
I also do some file version cleaning and database optimising as a part of the upgrade.
We'd love to see what we can do to get this resolved for you. Please reach out to us at [email protected] and provide the primary email address on the account and the best phone number to reach you and we'll do what we can to make things right. Thanks.
