I have updated mydbr to ver 5.9.1
Also, my install runs on very old php (Apache 2.4 and php 5.6.3). Also, I am seeing warning about my version of ioncube (10.0.1) which also needs upgrading.
I have tried to get everything running on Apache 2.4 + php 7.4.3 and used ioncube loader dll ioncube_loader_win_7.4.dll
However, when trying to do it, when I navigate to mydbr, I see this error msg:
Fatal error: The file C:\xampp\htdocs\mydbr\index.php was encoded by the ionCube Encoder for PHP 5.6 and cannot run under PHP 7.1 or later. Please ask the provider of the script to provide a version encoded with the ionCube Encoder for PHP 7.1. in Unknown on line 0
Can you please advise on the correct order of steps for me to get my environment updated.
php 7.4 also has quite limited lifespan, but for php 8 seems like there is no ioncube loader available yet.
