PHP7.4 soon to be EOL; PHP 8 support?

CMS Version


Installation Method

Custom install

Operating System



PHP7.4 is EOL at the end of Nov 2022; I see the install requirements still say php8 isn’t supported. I wondered what the progress or plans, if any, are for a release that supports php 8?

Kind regards

Good afternoon,

It does not seem desirable to run PHP 7.4 after it went EOL. Would also like to see an update on this.

Kind regards,

Hi Daniel_Bird and mbond008, welcome to the community!

The development team are aware of this and are working towards a release that supports PHP 8. Please keep an eye on the Xibo blog for further updates on PHP 8 support.

Thank you both for raising this question, I hope other community users will also see this post if they are wondering what is happening with PHP 8 support.

Many Thanks.

Hi Team,

Hope all is well. Have been checking the blog for a while but did not come accross any news on PHP 8 support. PHP 7.4 went EOL a couple of weeks ago and support for PHP 8 would be highly appriciated.

Is there an update on the progress you are able to share with the community?

Kind regards,

Hello all community users who are checking the company blog for more information about PHP 8 support. I have spoken to the development team, who have confirmed that PHP 8 support as a key requirement for the upcoming version 4 Alpha. More news about the alpha’s release will be posted on the Xibo Blog in the near future.

In the meantime, here is a link to the issue report for PHP 8 so you can track its progress:

Many Thanks.
