PHP Editor

I google it and the zdsoft is an perl and php editor, so I am not clear what exactly you are asking.
I can suggest to you vscode as an IDE, there is also an thread about the best IDE, so you can try other ones to find that one which will be best for you
Thanks for your reply. 12 years ago I wrote a zillion scripts in html/php. I used php 5.5 and DZSoft. It's all been running well. However, godaddy is moving me to another private server and they will not have php 5.5 available. So I need to upgrade to php 7.4. Unfortunately I am a lot older now and have forgotten a lot of the things I did years ago. I installed the latest version of DZSoft (I think - which is a problem when it comes to computers) but it does not tell me the version anywhere. In addition to that, how do I know version php they are using during the "Syntax Check". How else can I check my php scripts to make sure they are compatible with 7.4 and error free? - I apologize. I have only been in the computer business since 1963 and it looks like I am loosing it now! That's what happens when you get old!

Thanks again for your help.

I have used something similar when I upgraded php from 5.3 to 7.2 on some legacy app.
