Or if there is an option then use Windows to host multiple php 
versions.  I use them all the time on my development machine that is 
running Windows 10 and IIS.  you just need to make sure you have the 
correct VC++ run time libraries.  You can download them from Microsoft 
Website (VC9, VC10, VC11/12, VC14).

I agree, the old code should to be migrated to run on latest PHPs.
