Choosing which version of PHP your account uses as well as which PHP Extensions are available is a simple process that can be completed from right within your cPanel.
- Access your cPanel.
- Click on "Select PHP Version" under the "Software" section.
- At the top of this page you will see "Current PHP version:". To change which version of PHP your account uses - select a new version in the version selection drop-down box and click the "Set as Current" button.
- The middle of this page lists which modules are enabled or disabled. You can enable any modules you wish by checking their respective boxes and clicking on the "Save" button at the bottom of the page.
If you change the PHP Version at the top and hit the Save button at the bottom - the PHP Version will not change/be saved. Conversely if you change PHP Modules by checking and unchecking boxes and you hit Set as Current at the top the PHP Modules settings will not be saved/changed.
When you do click "Set as Current" at the top or "Save" at the bottom - do make sure that when the page reloads that your settings did save.
