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:

  1. Locate the Software section, then click on the MultiPHP Manager icon.
  2. Select the version of PHP you would like to use; 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, or 7.3.
  3. Click Save Changes or Apply to finish the update


If your site is not working after updating the PHP version, please see What to do if your Site Does Not Work with Newer Versions of PHP.
