    I see the usual down-votes piling up.
    When I just looked, you had one down vote, I would hardly call that "down-votes piling up." Please, don't try to make yourself more important than you are.

      Have you read any of their previous posts?

    it will not go well for you.

    That is because you threw up your hands and said that nothing can be done instead of offering an actual solution to keep the critical services up while a migration (probably away from PHP) is done while explaining that decisions made by people beyond your control have put us in this situation.

    A much better answer:

    Sir, that upgrade will cause catastrophic breakage because of [list reasons here and explain how they are due to the responsible parties]. I know this because I have already set up a testing box for that upgrade with this result. [(And you have; and it does not work.)] I am currently working to package our critical app in a container with its own copy of PHP5 so that we can still run it while we work to migrate the system to something that has a community that actually has a clue. I will get back to you when I have results on the testing box, hopefully a plausible upgrade plan for the main systems, and options for moving away from PHP.

    Note that I speak from experience here, except that I did not have the option of packaging the app and PHP4 into a container because the systems $WORK had did not support containers — and I was already recovering the system from backups after another admin ran the upgrade that installed PHP5.
