I was running a site on EE 1.7 (for many years! Such stability!), but recently the host updated all of their LAMP stacks to PHP 7.2 and I neglected to take action in time.
Now when I start the update process to EE2 (in order to get to EE5), it loads the first screen, but upon clicking the Begin button, I get a 500 error. I’m assuming this is because it requires PHP 5 to run the upgrade wizard. I’m stuck. What can I do?
