maybe you should switch to archlinux as your server environment, then.– this alone is a major reason to upgrade –
i daresay this holds true for php7, too. and all other software.and PHP 5 latest version still has options that when enabled can cause a security risk.
wordpress is a known vulnerability all by itself. lol.Wordpress.com recommends using MySQL 5.6 or greater and they surely have their reasons too. https://wordpress.org/about/requirements/
