This is probably a silly question but has somebody ported ICA-Atom 1.3.2 to make it work with PHP 7?
I have installed ICA-Atom 1.3.2 in our hosted web space. Being a PHP only application, the installation does not required root permissions, it is just a matter of setting up the database, copying the files to desired folder and going through the web setup wizard. All was very straightforward and we had the system up and running in a couple of hours.
Now, our hosting service have announced that they are going top allowing PHP4 and PHP5 in their servers for security reasons, as they are very old versions. The problem is that ICA-AtoM 1.3.2 does not work with PHP7 because PHP7 is not backwards compatible. :(
I have tried installing AtoM 2.5 in our hosted web space but we have the big problem that it requires Elastic Search. As I don't have access root access to the hosted space, I cannot install Elastic Search myself. I will have to ask our provider to install it and it will probably come at an additional cost. :( Or we might have to go for a managed server which would multiply our costs by 10...
Because the installation of AtoM 1.3.2 is much more straightforward than AtoM 2.5, I was thinkining of sticking to the previous version to limit the costs but the fact that it does not support PHP7 is not so good.
So, this is the background for my question: is it possible to make ICA-AtoM compatible with PHP7 or is it really not worth looking into it?
