Hi, the original post said to let you know if there are problems. When I followed the very clear instructions and changed the .htaccess file to indicate PHP7, then my Wordpress site said "Database Access Error." Restoring the .htaccess file to 53 fixed it. the original post said something about the SQL password, so I wonder if that is what is causing it, but I have no idea how to remedy. THanks

Never mind for my previous post... The original post said you could use member tools to update your SQL password, but in fact you need to use SSH, and follow the instructions in this post:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=9245&start=10

Which I did. Problem solved

It has now been a month and no one has made any replies. I guess the forums are pointless as a source of support or information.

I have followed the instructions as indicated in the earlier posts. My site is fully up to date for WordPress, all plugins and all themes, active or not.

This was my original PHP statement:

AddHandler php-cgi .php
Action php-cgi /cgi-bin/php56

I updated this statement to the following:

AddHandler php-cgi .php
Action php-cgi /cgi-bin/php7

When I try to load the web site, the page is blank. If i try to view any postings from the Wordpress admin console, the pages are all blank. When viewing the rendered page code, this is all that is presented:

<html>
<head><head>
<body><body>
</html>

When I revert to the first PHP statement above, everything is normal again.

I have no idea why none of my pages can be rendered at all with the statement provided.

Hi,
My htaccess file has a note in it that I'm not real sure of but think from previous stuff you guys needed to update me to the PHP Version 7 for my Wordpress folder for bobseyes.net.
Thanks
