Hello. I've inherited a website built around Symphony 2.3.6 (with which I have zero experience), and the hosting provider is finally getting ready to deprecate PHP 5.6. Ultimately, I would like to get everything properly current and up to date, but my immediate priority is making the thing functional with PHP 7.1+ in the most-expedient manner possible.

Here are the current extensions in use:

Author Roles 1.2 (Disabled)
CKEditor 1.3.3
Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) Filter 1.2
Date and Time 3.1.1
Debug Devkit 1.2.4
Device Categorizr 1.0.0
Global Resource Loader 1.1
HTML5 Doctype 1.3
Just In Time (JIT) Image Manipulation 1.19
Limit Section Entries 1.1.0
Map Location Field 3.3.0
Markdown Text Formatter 1.17
oEmbed Field 1.8.3
Order Entries 1.10.1
Pages Field 1.5
Profile Devkit 1.3
Select Box Link Field 1.28
Sitemap XML 2.2
Subsection Manager 3.5.1

I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction here. I've gathered that I'll need to update Symphony to version 2.7.0 or greater, but I also understand that some of the extensions will need to be upgraded to work with newer Symphony versions, while others have been supplanted by different packages, or integrated into Symphony core. I don't have a super-great understanding about how everything fits together right now, and I fear that may be a prerequisite for migrating some of these extensions, hence my desire to get PHP 7.1+ working here with the least disturbance possible!

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

+1 - I am in the same boat. Would love some info on how best to do this.
