WMU web server upgrade, Sunday, Sept. 22
Posted by Gary Barton on July 10, 2019

The WMU web server for www websites is being updated to address security issues on Sunday, Sept. 22. The most notable change is the upgrade of PHP 5.4 To 7.2. Content hosted on this server outside the WMU CMS may need to be checked for compatibility with the new version of PHP. The dev and test www environments (wwwdev.wmich.edu and wwwtest.wmich.edu) have already been updated and are available for testing content.

As a reminder the WMU CMS is the recommended delivery method for www web content and is supported by the Office of Marketing and Strategic Communication. The Office of Information Technology does not provide support for individual or departmental web applications running on the www web server. Questions regarding your web content and web application compatibility with the new version of PHP should be directed to the individual or department responsible for maintaining your website and web application. Please direct other questions regarding this update to the Help Desk at (269) 387-4357.
