Developer Notes for Blesta 5.5

  1. Added the ability for registrar modules to validate registration and transfer terms for TLDs.
  2. If you haven't already, we recommend updating your extensions to work with PHP 8.0/8.1.


We recommend exercising caution when using PHP 8 for production use. Many 3rd party or custom extensions may not yet be compatible with PHP 8.

Blesta supports PHP 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.1 through Ioncube using the default files, and PHP 8.0/8.1 through SourceGuardian via the hotfix-php8 directory. 

Domain Registrar Modules

Reminder: Registrar modules should define their type in config.json as: "type": "registrar",

Hotfix Notice

Hotfix Notice

Blesta no longer supports versions older than PHP 7.2, so there is no longer a need to ship hotfixes for those versions. A hotfix is included for PHP 8.0/8.1 for Source Guardian, but no hotfix is needed for PHP 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, and 8.1 when using Ioncube.
