As you may know, Forge allows you to upgrade to new major releases of PHP. However, beginning today, you can upgrade to the latest patch release of PHP within your current major version. For example, if your server is currently running on PHP 7.2.2, you can upgrade to PHP 7.2.11 (or whatever the latest patch release happens to be).

You can upgrade your server’s PHP version on the “PHP” tab of the server’s management panel. Note that any PHP upgrade can cause downtime on your server — so take special care when performing these operations on production servers!

If you don’t have a Forge account, now is a great time to sign up. Forge allows you to painlessly create and manage PHP 7.2 servers which include MySQL, Redis, Memcached, and everything else you need to run robust, modern Laravel applications.
