No, Magento 1.x is not compatible with php7. The documentation clearly states:


  • MySQL 5.6 (Oracle or Percona)


Magento CE 1.9.2 and later, Magento EE 1.14.2 and later:

  • PHP 5.6.x
  • PHP 5.4.x
  • PHP 5.5.x

Earlier Magento versions:

  • PHP 5.4.x
  • PHP 5.5.x

  • It is not compatible with 7.x because they DO NOT WANT TO. Thx to that, they can lie about benchmarks 1.x VS 2.x . It's really easy to make it compatible. Just use google and do it, you will gain a lot. Commented Mar 1, 2018 at 15:34
