  • cPanel offers the possibility to change the PHP version at domain, subdomain and add-on domain by MultiPHP Manager. Depending on the requirements of installed apps or created sites, you can choose between major PHP versions such as: 5.5, 5.6 , 7.0, 7.1.


  • In order to modify the PHP version of a domain, subdomain, or add-on domain, we need to access the cPanel control panel. This can be done either by accessing domain.xx / cpanel or cpanel.domain.xx, or directly from the WHM interface. The WHM administration data can be found in the email with the VPS administration data.


  •   Once the control panel is accessed, we will go to the Software section and click on MultiPHP Manager.

  • In the next window at the bottom of the page, a list of all the domains, subdomains and add-ons added to the cPanel account will be loaded. This list will also contain the selected PHP version for each domain.

  • As you can see in the above image, in this case the two domains and the subdomain use the PHP version 5.6.
  • We will be able to modify the PHP version of one or more domains by checking the box on the left.
  • As an example, we will change the PHP version of and from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.1. Once we have selected the domains, we will choose the wanted PHP version and click Apply.

  • After this action, we will be greeted by a confirmation message, and the selected domains will work on the PHP version that you want.
