phpVMS Version 2 (https://github.com/nabeelio/phpvms_v2) was the original phpVMS version and still works to some extent, but requires your PHP version to be >5.6.

phpVMS Version 5.5.x (https://github.com/DavidJClark/phpvms_5.5.x) is the current stable version of phpVMS and can be used on PHP systems (mainly on 5.5.12) of up to 5.6. Some people have made it work on PHP v7 with no errors, but it's different for everyone on their own hosting.

phpVMS Version 7 (https://github.com/nabeelio/phpvms) is currently in development and is a totally different version of the two listed above. This version will be the newest and most up-to-date version when released but is still somewhere between Alpha and Beta stages (you can test it though, but there will still be bugs and changes that will occur before the official release). This version is made for PHP Versions >7.1.

Just one note, the "Version 2" is defaulted to the php70 branch, which makes it compatible with php 5.6+

When you say 5.6+ do you mean up to PHP versions 7.0, 7.1, 7.2 :) And does this make it more secure or up to date than v5? And will most modules work with it?

I wouldn't consider it more up to date than 5.5.x (it was Nabeel's v2 ported up which was quite old to begin with) but still usable. The intention was to make the current version work with PHP 7.0 so I would assume that it would run fine on that setup (as 5.5.x has never been given the official 'run on PHP 7.0+'). As for security, it's possible that some minor adjustments (for PHP 7.0) here and there have been added but nothing too major should have been impacted (otherwise we would have been notified). The modules depend on the developer, I'd say most would work fine but you might have a few hiccups if they have some deprecated features or otherwise.

If you already have a working site then I'd personally wait for v7 than to try and mess around with upgrading again.

I am not changing from v5.X I was just asking for general information. And I have been testing v7 for Nabeel for quite awhile and can't wait till it is fully released. It's really nice!

Thanks for the info!
