re: about the last point what is the minimum php version required?
 
 

Anyway, if you're using anything less than 7.1 in 2019 you're doing something wrong :p

PHP 5.6 is discontinued but for practical purpose, PHP 5.6 is still alive and kicking so the community, projects, servers and so on. In fact, I have a project that uses php 5.2 and I can kill it neither upgrade. I can't upgrade because they don't pay me for it, and I can kill it because the customer is happy with it.

Legacy projects can be a pain in the ass that's why IBM is contributing to the 5.x branch of php to give developers and customers time to adapt and migrate, but EOL means it will no longer get security updates or fixes
