PHP Installation Statistics May 2017

Latest statistics are out:

It's interesting to note that PHP 5.4 installs account for only 3% of the total installs. Most people are on PHP 7, which is A Good Thing (although I must note that the usage statistics are from people who use Composer, so this might not be fully accurate, especially with crappy hosting services)

Only VERY SLIGHTLY I hope :)

I would like to think that XF is much more utilised than the 45% of WP blogs that are abandoned/unmaintained and sitting on the simplest and lowest form of shared hosting.

Well 80-90% of those stats are using v4.0 and above which is around 2.5 years old.
