In cPanel, changing the PHP version can vary slightly depending on the version of cPanel you’re using, but the general process remains similar. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Login to cPanel: Access your cPanel account using your credentials provided by your hosting provider.
  2. Locate “MultiPHP Manager” or “Select PHP Version”: This option may be under different names depending on your cPanel theme or version. Look for it in the Software section or a similar category.
  3. Select the Domain: Click the check box to the left of the domain you want to modify.
  4. Choose the PHP Version: In the PHP version dropdown (upper right), select the PHP version you want to switch to. The available versions may depend on what your hosting provider supports and has installed.
  5. Apply Changes: Once you’ve selected the desired PHP version, click on the “Apply” button or a similar option to apply the changes.
  6. Check for Compatibility: Sometimes, certain functions or scripts might not be compatible with newer PHP versions, so testing is essential. After changing the PHP version, make sure your website or application functions as expected. Go to your website or application and test its functionality thoroughly to ensure that everything is working correctly with the new PHP version.
  7. Revert Changes if Necessary: If you encounter any issues or incompatibilities with the new PHP version, you can always revert back to the previous version using the same process.
  8. Adjust PHP Settings (Optional): You can adjust specific PHP settings such as memory_limit, max_execution_time, etc. using the Multi PHP INI tool in the control panel

Remember that changing PHP versions might affect your website’s functionality, so it’s essential to test thoroughly before making the switch in a production environment. If you’re unsure about any aspect of this process, don’t hesitate to contact support for assistance.
