About Webtest on Webserve

Important:
On Webserve, PHP 7.1 will become the default version in spring 2018; however, PHP 5.6 will still be available until it is retired at the end of December 2018. As of Jan 18, Webtest servers are already using PHP 7.1. For help specifying which version of PHP to use, see PHP server-side scripting language.

Webtest is a test server available to all Webserve account owners. It is intended as an environment to test and develop websites and applications prior to moving them into production on Webserve.
