For Business and Reseller web hosting clients

If you signed up for Business or Reseller hosting, the servers your web site resides on use CloudLinux, so you can use a component called PHP Selector.

Once you’ve logged into cPanel, click Select PHP Version.


At the next screen, click the dropdown menu and change the value from “native(5.6)” and then click the “Set as Current” button.

You can choose from PHP 5.6, 7.0 or lower ie 5.5, 5.4 etc

You’ll be redirected to the “PHP Selector | extensions” page.  Click the blue link “Switch to PHP Options” in the top right hand corner.

Click the grey value shown next to the PHP configuration item you want to alter, type in the new value and click Save.
