The first beta version of Geeklog v2.2.1 is now available for download.

This version of Geeklog now fully supports PHP v7.3. The minimum PHP requirements have changed, they have gone from v5.3.3 to v5.6.4. In part for security reasons, we decided to update the minimum requirements of PHP to v5.6 since this is the only version of PHP v5 that has received any security updates in the last year. The system requirements for installing Geeklog v2.2.1 is now:

  • PHP 5.6.4 or higher
  • MySQL 4.1.2 or higher (MySQL 5 recommended)
  • Postgresql 9.1.7 or later

New major features, improvements and fixes in this version include:
