How do I change PHP version?

As standard, we run PHP 7+. If you wish to switch version, head to My20i > Manage Hosting > [Select Package] > “Switch PHP Version

Our Linux platform has the ability to run different versions of PHP:

  • PHP 5.3
  • PHP 5.4
  • PHP 5.5
  • PHP 5.6
  • PHP 7.0
  • PHP 7.1
  • PHP 7.2
  • PHP 7.3
  • PHP 7.4
  • PHP 8.0

Version changes may take up to 60 seconds, but are usually instant.
