Drupal and PHP


I’m new to Drupal although our website has been using a Drupal based forum for many years.

All our web domains currently use PHP5.4 which is on extended support by our host providers and we currently upgrading or website pages to use PHP5.5 and MySQLi.

I’m hoping my question will be quite simple, would a Drupal based forum be affected by PHP changes?

Apologies if this is a daft question, again I’m new to Drupal.

Many thanks,
