I am on XenForo ver 1.5.6

Currently, my website server is using Apache 2.2 and PHP 5.3

What is the ideal Apache and Php versions to which I can safely upgrade without any issues with the work ability of the my websites.

Please advice,

Thank you

5.4 is the current minimum recommendation for php. But run at least 5.6 if you have a choice. The only reason I don't update to 7.0 yet is fear of plugins or other software we run on the server not being compatible.

Not sure on the Apache part. Last i checked there are 2 branches. I would say latest of either supported branche. Perhaps the one that supports http2?
