Rebuilding my website on the newer version 8
You should be able to upgrade your site to 184.108.40.206 which is the last version we're releasing in the 5.6.x branch. I would recommend taking a complete backup first and doing this soon because your current version does not work well with PHP version 7, and your web host is likely to upgrade PHP before long as version 6 is very much end of life.
Sadly I do not think that the multi-file uploader got swapped out in 5.6.4, so I'm afraid you'll be uploading files one at a time still.
Rebuilding your site in version 8 would get you onto a more modern version of our platform that will continue to have an update path. The new file manager in version 9 which will be released later this year is a joy to use. "
Does anyone have the skills to undertake this job, and what would be the costs?
When Franz says 'rebuilding' he means starting over, from scratch - you don't have to have a new design, new copy, new pics etc. but everything going on the v8+ site will have to be built and populated.
So basically 90% of the people on this forum will be able to help! :)
As for costs, that all depends on the new website; how big it is, what it looks like, functionality, how much support you want, how much content you'll handle yourself etc.
If you can link to your existing website then people can quote based on just reproducing it in the new version but, if you're interested in a redesign, SEO etc. (and now would be the ideal time to do it) let us know that too.
We would be happy to help with updating your site to version 8. Just understand that it consists of basically build out a new website and importing all your current pictures and content. If your still interested in our services, feel free to leave your contact information at

Rebuilding on version 8 is effectively a new site, as others have said. This would be a design process and site build so days/weeks not hours.
Would like to assist the requirement.
Can we have a discussion for the same?
