    PHP 7 is said to be much faster than 5.x. Needless to say my site is also running on version 7 and thumbnails are missing too 😉

    They always say it’s much faster, but then you run an average site and realize that slowdown has nothing to do with PHP and all to do with everything else. With Symbiostock, PHP is not the issue – PHP performs very few calculations (unless you’re using the GD library). A majority of the resources (and I mean 95%) is database querying and image manipulation, both of which are done using external software. And this is just server side. 99% of the speed that the end user experiences has to do with their distance to the server and the strength of their internet connection.

    What that all means is the average user, guaranteed, will experience literally the exact same speed running a site on PHP4 or PHP7.
