How to Switch Your PHP Version in Cpanel


The latest version of cPanel/WHM is shipped with the EasyApache 4.0. It allows you to install and run multiple versions of PHP side by side for various domain and sub-domains in your cpanel account.

We at QServers Web Hosting understand that some of your applications/themes/plugins/modules may require a certain PHP version for them to work correctly, hence we support multiple versions of PHP.

By default your account will be assigned with native PHP version which is the main PHP version of the server which varies in our shared servers.

To change the PHP version used for your account, follow these steps:

1.  Login to cpanel.

2.  Once you are logged in to cpanel, kindly scroll to "Software Section" or quickly search for "MultiPHP Manager" as in the image below.
