    Just a reminder that PHP 5.6 branch and PHP 7.0 branch security updates end December 2018 PHP: Supported Versions. So folks ideally need to upgrade to at least PHP 7.1 branch or optimally to PHP 7.2 branch before December 2018.
    • PHP 5.6 security updates end December 31, 2018 (was previously extended)
    • PHP 7.0 security updates end December 3, 2018

    Maybe this will push people to upgrade to PHP 7 from 5.

    Nope.
    If users still using PHP 5 right now they will not switch and there is absolutely no incentive or reason for it.
    Few reasons:

    - PHP 5 is still supported via distros with backport patches like RHEL.
    - PHP 5 is used for compatibility
    - Users have no idea at all and will only proceed when the provider does that for them.
