Thanks Marcos for your time and help...
May you answer two quick questions regarding this setup, please.
1) Since we were able to update, does that mean there are no more concerns about
"L1 Terminal Fault: Privileged memory access vulnerability in Intel CPUs" issue that occurred on 08/22?
2) One of the main reasons I hopped onto a new instance with all the sites was because we were hoping to be up-to-date with PHP... Yet, the updated instance has us at the following;
PHP 7.0.30 (cli) (built: Jun 11 2018 11:14:17) ( NTS )
Copyright (c) 1997-2017 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v3.0.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2017 Zend Technologies
with Zend OPcache v7.0.30, Copyright (c) 1999-2017, by Zend Technologies
Should there be cause for alert given that this version will no longer have updates beginning next month?
