How To Change Your PHP Version - PHP Config Guide
You can change your PHP version inside the PHP Version Manager page of your account.
Things to Keep In Mind
While it is best practice to always use the most recent version of PHP, it is important to check the compatibility of your site against new versions of PHP before upgrading. Sites built with WordPress can use the PHP Compatibility Checker plugin.
Updating PHP Version
Our System allows you to run PHP scripts a few different ways. You will see these options on the version selection page. Once logged into your cPanel:
- Locate the Software section, then click on the MultiPHP Manager icon.
Note: Legacy users will need to locate the Programming section, then click on the PHP Config icon.
- Select the version of PHP you would like to use; 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, or 7.3.
Note: Legacy accounts support PHP versions 7.0 through 7.3.
- Click Save Changes or Apply to finish the update
