This article describes how to change the PHP version and additional settings by using MultiPHP in cPanel.

Changing the PHP version

MultiPHP enables you to use multiple versions of PHP on your server at the same time. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. In the SOFTWARE section of the cPanel home screen, click MultiPHP Manager:How to change PHP versions and settings using MultiPHP kb cpanel paper lantern multiphp manager icon
    If you do not see MultiPHP Manager in the SOFTWARE section, your server does not support this feature.
  3. Under System PHP Version, cPanel displays the default PHP version for your server. Any domain that does not have a PHP version explicitly set uses this version.
  4. To change the PHP version for a domain, under Set PHP Version per Domain, select the check box next to the domain for which you want to change the PHP version:How to change PHP versions and settings using MultiPHP kb cpanel paper lantern multiphp manager select domain
  5. In the PHP Version list box, select the PHP version you want to use for the domain, and then click Apply:How to change PHP versions and settings using MultiPHP kb cpanel paper lantern multiphp manager select version
  6. The new PHP version for the domain takes effect immediately.

Changing PHP settings

In addition to changing the PHP version from cPanel, you can change various PHP settings using MultiPHP. You can enable and disable PHP extensions, as well as configuration directives such as allow_url_fopenerror_log, and many more.

This feature removes the need to configure and maintain custom files for PHP settings from the command line. Instead, you control all PHP settings directly from cPanel.

To change your PHP settings, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. In the SOFTWARE section of the cPanel home screen, click MultiPHP INI Editor:How to change PHP versions and settings using MultiPHP kb cpanel paper lantern multiphp ini editor icon

  3. Under Configure PHP INI basic settings, in the Select a location list box, select the home directory or a domain document root:How to change PHP versions and settings using MultiPHP kb cpanel paper lantern multiphp ini editor select location
  4. Under PHP Directive, locate the PHP directive you want to change.
  5. Under Setting, select the new setting that you want for the directive.
    Depending on the directive you select, you may need to use a slider to enable or disable the setting. Alternatively, you may need to type a value into a text box.
  6. At the bottom of the page, click Apply. The new PHP settings take effect immediately.
