Magento is one of the biggest and most popular e-commerce platforms written in PHP. The very first Magento release, known as ‘Bento’, is dated to March 31, 2008.

Nowadays we are happy users of Magento 1.9 that supports PHP versions up to 5.5.x (officially announced), but the platform also smoothly runs on PHP v5.6.
