WordPress 5.2 is Now Available

May 8, 2019

WordPress 5.2 has just been released and includes a new recovery mode that can help users repair malfunctioning websites.

Ever update a plugin only for it to break your site, leaving only a blank white page?

Should this ever occur, WordPress 5.2 now includes a recovery mode that identifies and pauses problematic themes and plugins, allowing users to repair their websites without having to call in their website developer or our support staff for assistance.

WordPress 5.2 also introduces plugin compatibility checks to ensure that your PHP version meets the minimum version required by the plugin before it can be activated.

Speaking of PHP versions, WordPress 5.2 increases the minimum PHP version required to use the software to PHP 5.6. Fortunately, all of our servers use PHP 5.6 at a minimum, so unless you manually changed your account to use an older PHP version, you will be ready for this upgrade!

Varial Hosting customers who have automatic upgrades enabled through Installatron will be automatically upgraded to this new version. All other users may manually upgrade using Installatron or from their WordPress administrative areas.

cPanel Updated to v78 Across All Servers

April 9, 2019

The latest major release of cPanel is now available to all Varial Hosting customers. Version 78 features improvements to the Email Accounts interface and a new tool called Email Deliverability to manage DKIM keys and SPF records. As previously announced, v78 also removes SquirrelMail from our Webmail options due to the project being abandoned by its original developers. The next time you log into Webmail, SquirrelMail users will be asked to select between our RoundCube (our personal favourite) and Horde Webmail applications.

More details on all the new changes can be found at:

MultiPHP Manager Replaced with PHP Selector on Hermione

February 1, 2019

We have replaced cPanel’s MultiPHP Manager tool with CloudLinux’s PHP Selector on our Hermione server.

Available PHP versions remain the same, only the tool used to change your PHP version has changed.

Customers can change their PHP version and adjust their PHP options using this tool, which is now used across all of our servers.
