How to Change PHP Version in cPanel

How to Change PHP Version in Cpanel. The latest versions of cPanel make it easy to choose what PHP version your site is using. With just a few clicks, you can switch between different versions and even use different versions across sites in the same cPanel. This is especially helpful when upgrading older sites, troubleshooting, or dealing with third-party applications. Let’s take a look at how to make the most of PHP on all types of servers!

Don’t have time to read the article on how to change PHP Version? Watch our walk-through video.

PHP Versions and Server Types

Our SysAdmins install the latest versions of PHP on our SharedReseller, and cPanel-based WordPress servers after testing and troubleshooting. The ‘default’ version of PHP for newly created sites is often one or two versions behind for the sake of stability— but feel free to update to the latest version as soon as it is available!

With VPS and Dedicated Servers, we trust you and your SysAdmins to manage PHP installation and updates. If you need help, though, our 24/7 Technical Support team is happy to install newer versions of PHP at your request!

If you have a VPS or Dedicated Server, newer versions of PHP may need to be installed manually.

cPanel’s MultiPHP Manager

Just a few years ago, managing different cPanel PHP versions was an all-or-nothing ordeal. Older tools would change the PHP version for every site on a cPanel at once. Configuring different individual sites required awkward workarounds using .htaccess files. The latest versions of cPanel introduced a new tool, MultiPHP Manager, which simplifies the process. Click on the MultiPHP Manager icon in the Software section of cPanel to get started!

Please Note: be sure to click on MultiPHP Manager and not MultiPHP INI Editor. The INI Editor is a different piece of software that helps you fine tune your PHP settings on individual sites.

Change the PHP Version on Your Sites

Now that you know what the MultiPHP Manager is, we’ll show you how to use it to change the PHP version for your sites.

  1. Login to cPanel.
  2. Click the MultiPHP Manager link in the Software section of cPanel.
  3. Check the box for the site or sites you wish to update.
  4. Select the desired PHP Version from the drop-down menu.
  5. Click the Apply button.
