Default PHP 7.1 or 7.2 out of box #301
Not quite... PHP 5 is still technically "supported": https://www.drupal.org/docs/8/system-requirements/php-requirement.
It's not actually dependant on "hostmaster", "hostmaster" is just Aegir's drupal distribution name.
We should make this part more clear, and add it to the docs.
Support for various PHP Versions
As maintainers of DevShop, it is near impossible for us to support all PHP versions on all operating systems. DevShop is Drupal, so it will run anywhere Drupal can run.
Therefore, we don't (yet) force any changes to the PHP version, and always defer to the Operating Systems choice.
If you are comfortable altering the OS packaging repos to change the PHP version of your server, feel free to do so.
Otherwise, please choose your OS based on your desired PHP version to ensure your host will always have the OS-supported version of PHP:
Once DevShop fully supports Docker natively (it's pretty close now: Please test https://www.drupal.org/project/hosting_docker)
I'm going to change this issue to be about documenting this problem.
